They are: but the system is complicated beyond belief. i.e. for someone who
only uses rosetta: impossible.
for me (I know a fair amount and can do po files, but am not a translating
wizard by any stretch of the imagination): I still haven't figured it out,
and would need to devote A LOT of time to do so.

I suggest that, now Libre Office will be default in Ubuntu (and I think most
distros), we push for the translations for Libre to be handled in a
user-friendly way: the best way I know is rosetta. The upstream issue was
relating to the fact that translating Libre wouldn't start from scratch; we
would probably sync the translations down from the openoffice communities,
perhaps regularly, and if our work was compatible, they might be peeved if
nothing was sent back upstream.
