That's true, but from a user point of view, having a 40% completed translation is very unpleasant. Switching read language is very not pleasant IMO. And we just removed those translations from release, not from trunk. > I am inclined to do the reverse -- if you continue with this practice, > I think I will stop maintaining my own translation.

We don't want to punish anyone, of course. If someone is interested in continuing those translations, we'll of course give him the po (which is still in trunk by the way) >> But that means you have to verify the translation makes sense etc. > > Even the best translator can't do that, which is why translation teams > cooperate and try to fix bugs by looking at each others work, and > processing users' bug reports.
