Hopefully we could sync them upstream (from a technical, libre/open
compatibility point of view. But yes, it may be at the discretion of the
oo.org communities, and if they are concerned about the quality of
translations being received (especially as libre translators would be
working outside the control/management of the oo.org communities) I see the
potential for difficulties.

I'm just theorising here, I should make that clear. Hopefully there is
someone around who already does OpenOffice translations?
