some comments:

 - normal debian user/developers make the translations of the
 - the DDTP has a own BTS for the translations. If you have a better
   translation, you can submit a changed translation to the project
 - the DDTP/DDTS support a review system. Now only the it and fr
   translators use this review system. 
   In this review process the server send all translated descriptions to
   three reviewer who check the translation. And only if all three
   reviewer and the translator sign the translation, the translated
   description will pass the review process.

Maybe I should make a new DDTP summary ...
