    Hi

    I would like to know when would updated translations be available to end-users please?

    Also is there any form of monitoring, at all, in translations, to check that the terms have been translated accurately?

    Thanks and regards.

      They will be available in the next release, but we haven't defined a date for it yet since we are corrying large changes in the software currently.

      Unfortunately not :( The Rosetta web site is very practical for gathering new contributors on the project, but suffers from beeing too easily modifiable by anyone. I already had problem with a dumb French guy who for some reasons un-translated some text in the french constellation names...

      So currently the only way I had was to send an email to some contributors for each language before the release to told them that they should have a final look at the translation before the release... The problem is that there is currently no official translator for each language to talk to.

      Current resources are the wiki page:
      http://www.stellarium.org/wiki/index.php/Translation_using_gettext
      the translation forum (on which you posted this message):
      http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=1627210&forum_id=565801

      I am very open to any suggestion/contribution to improve this process.

      Cheers,

      Fabien
