It doesn't matters for English-language people ;-)
Please, feel free to contact my private mail if you'd like to help
me on translating dpkg.po to Polish.

BTW, I finished my patch and dpkg is fully i18n-able. See Bug#48104
and second patch.

It works:

root@scarlet~# LANG=pl dpkg -s dpkg
Pakiet: dpkg
Istotny: tak
Stan: instalacja ok zainstalowany
Priorytet: konieczny
Sekcja: base
Rozmiar-Instalacji: 1224
Opiekun: Ian Jackson and others <dpkg-maint@chiark.greenend.org.uk>
Zastępuje: dpkg-doc-ja

Of course, the internal processing has disabled translating (i.e. for 
rebuilding /var/lib/dpkg/status).

If it possible, I'd like to internationalizate dselect.
