The upload of translations from the Karmic versions to the trunk
branches of projects is a manual process the project maintainers must
do. In practice, though, I've found out that this step doesn't always
happen, it depends on the project.

What I personally tend to do is to translate upstream first, so that
translations flow to the distro. Then I check that translations did make
it to the distro and see if there are any new ones, which I translate
there. Then I go to the project's trunk again and see if these new
strings are there. If they are, the distro's translations will appear as
global suggestions, which I will simply have to click to accept. In
summary, as a translator I try to keep the translations manually sync.

In your case, if you've been translating in the distro, I'd recommend to
import those translations to the projects' trunk branches as well.
