    I am fairly sure the strings file will be fine.
    Provide a link, or send it ot the list.

    IIRC the strings in the current prerelease of Abiword 2 have been frozen,
    all patches at the moment must be cleared by Martin or Dom.

    The release is planned for September 6 (or was it 8) so it would be
    advisable to get as much as possible of your current translation in on
    time for 2.0

    I think (but I might be wrong) that it is not legally recommended to
    translate the copyright information and License text that is currently
    shown in the About Dialog.

    Thanks to your team for their valuable work in improving Abiword
