Yes, Xfce from svn is almost fully translated.
At least the following packages I see in finnish from svn
, but are in english in xubuntu:
1) orage (except orageclock plugin)
2) xfwm4 (settings are visible)
3) xfsession (again settings)
4) xfce panel
5) theme preferences
6) window manager tweaks (settings again)
7) work spaces and margins settings
8) xfdesktop
