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 ... > PS: please forgive me for my english ;-) how can one join the > translation project? write a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject like GET 5 de and you will get some untranslated description and a guide.
