Grisu gave some URLs, e.g. you can browse
and look for templates-de.po files within package directories.
Joey Hess wrote a script to get translated templates from the ddts, see

AFAICT it works this way, as does also
Petter Reinholdtsen wrote scripts/gettext-helper, I did not yet use it,
but it is definitely worth a try. This script lets you manage all
debian-installer PO files (in CVS) within a single PO file.
As you can see, there are many different solutions; you can choose your
preferred one, but things are simpler if all translators for a given
language agree on a unique scheme.
