> Hi translators,
> I am pleased to announce that our current development release, Ubuntu
> Quantal, is now open for translation:
> https://translations.launchpad.net/ubuntu
> Some additional information that will be useful for translators:
> - Translation schedule. Remember that according to the release schedule
> [1] translatable messages might be subject to change until the
> TranslationDeadline[2], on the week of the 9th of October.
> TranslationDeadline is a new concept, unifying the former
> NonLanguagePackTranslationDeadline and the
> LanguagePackTranslationDeadline.
> - Language packs. During the development cycle, language packs
> containing translations will be released twice per week [3] except for
> the freeze periods. This will allow users and translators to quickly see
> and test the results of translations.
> - KDE is not translatable anymore on Launchpad. As KDE packages have
> moved to the Universe repository, they are not going to be translatable
> for Quantal [4]. KDE packages will still contain upstream translations,
> so you are encouraged to contribute directly to the KDE project.
> - Test and report bugs. If you notice any issues (e.g. untranslated
> strings or applications), do check with the translation team for your
> language [5] first. If you think it is a genuine bug, please report it [6].
> - Learn more. Learn how to start translating Ubuntu and enable millions
> to use it in their language [7].

Is it possible to disable translation for the packages that cannot be translated using LP or will not be included into 12.10?

Packages that cannot be translated:

libktorrent (part of KDE's KTorrent and KGet)

Packages that probably will not be released:

kubuntu-docs ( http://irclogs.ubuntu.com/2012/07/26/%23kubuntu-devel.html Littlegirl has no time to finish update )

Many thanks for your answers.

Best regards,
