I just updated administrivia.po and boot-installer.po, but the only changed strings were about credits, and one insert in an accessibility sentence. Are there supposed to be new/changed strings about kFreeBSD? If so, they haven't shown up in my files.

This is historical, isn't it? po4a made the conversion more viable at some point. I know I much prefer using gettext, because I have all the tools available, especially for updating and checking strings.
How difficult or time-consuming would it be to convert currently non-po languages to gettext?
