AptOnCD is a project under ubuntu-translators umbrella but the link goes
to Launchpad help page:
https://translations.edge.launchpad.net/aptoncd

This is the link i see for "Translation help"
https://help.launchpad.net/Translations

I agree with the fact that page should be improved.

Here I tried to gather some general hints about doing translations:
https://help.launchpad.net/Translations/Guide

We must check with project is actualy using Rosetta... I know that some
of there are listed there, even thou they don't use rosetta for
translations.
https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/rosetta/+bug/335645
Here is the bug report.

I don't know who has the authority to move those projects. I assume it's
the project maintainer and in this case we should spam them with a
request for moving to launchpad-translators and give them a good reason
to do so.

I am a suporter of `launchpad-translators" but right now I don't know a
good reason for switching.

>From my point of view we should organized "launchpad-translators" and
then ask projects to move. 

Me and Milo are working at a launchpad-translators documentation:
My version: https://help.launchpad.net/Translations/LaunchpadTranslators
Milo's version: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MiloCasagrande/LT

Those pages contains useful information that could be also applied to
ubuntu-translators. We only need to decide what is useful and what is
garbage.

What is your opinion ?
