The situation for D-I translations is currently the following. It is not that brilliant, I have to say. And I limit details to "level 1". In very short: 33 languages are in good shape. *26 languages are in danger of being deactivated* More details ------------ The safe side ------------- 16 languages are complete: ar bg cs de es fr ga it ja lt nb pt ru sk th vi 14 languages were complete before changes to sublevel 5 and only have 5 fuzzy strings to very seldomly used packages: ast bn el eo et eu fi gu mr pl sl sq sv tr zh_TW 3 languages have a few strings to update in sublevels 1 to 3 but have active translators who will probably easy cope with them: be nl zh_CN The unsafe side --------------- 12 languages had random updates since lenny but not on a regular basis. These languages are at risk of being deactivated for Squeeze if they are not complete for sublevels 1 and 2: da gl ko pa ro he hi hu ka pt_BR ml tl 8 languages were complete in lenny but had no update since then. These languages are at risk of being deactivated for Squeeze if they are not complete for sublevels 1 and 2: bs ca dz hr id km lv mk ne nn ta wo Other languages are in various situations. Those marked "(P)" are not activated and have nearly no chance to be activated for Squeeze, the exception being Sinhala (si) which is making great progress. The 6 active languages listed below are at risk of being deactivated: 089% uk 1 087% ku 1 086% am 1 083% kk 083% si (P) 2 072% sr 1 069% cy 1 064% is (P) 1 043% ms (P) 1 034% kn (P) 1 025% br (P) 1 015% se 1 014% mg (P) 014% te (P) 2 012% fa (P) 1 009% xh (P) 1 008% ur (P) 1 002% hy (P) 1 000% lo (P) Squeeze release plans have not been made yet but I would say this is time to become aware of the situation and start hunting for translators for "endangered" languages.
