Sigh... Right after sending this message I found https://www.freedesktop.org/software/appstream/docs/chap-Metadata.html#spec-component-filespec Which better explains the translation tag. There's no need for us to specify which languages gnucash is translated in. I just have to set the translation domain and we're done.
So kindly ignore my previous question.
