1 partial
Latvian (56%)

3 additional language have reached a level where they could be released
Macedonian 100%
Vietnamese 66%
Malagasy 47%
Because of the implications they may have on the size of the installer
images and also because they haven't received enough testing, they
will not be included in the next release.

3 languages are currently not included and have very few translations
Serbian <1%
Northern Sami 1%
Irish 5%

The second stage of Debian Installer (all user input screens at
default debconf priority) is fully translated as follows:

30 complete from the above "complete" list
 1 nearly complete (Traditional Chinese)
 3 in good shape (Ukrainian, Albanese, Bosnian)
 4 partial (Welsh, Romanian, Slovenian, Galician)
 2 near zero (Persian, Latvian)

The translation ratio for all 4 "levels" is 73%:
level1: 97%
level2: 88%
level3: 53%
level4: 52%
The string freeze increased the overall ratio by 2.15%.
