A few suggestions:

- you should give a deadline to help translators organizing their work

- you should not make it too short: less than 10 days (1 week if
  really short) will not allow teams with formalized processes to
  complete it properly

- proofreading requests in debian-l10n-english is always a good idea
  (actually, I found no "big mistake" in your templates...but as I
   often make errors in English, that's not a complete proof that
   everything is perfect...:-))

- suggest translators to send new translations to the BTS (OK, I know
  I don't do it myself during the NMU campaign but this is done
