The Bulgarian translation is here very partial so there is room for
some translation work to take place. I don't know if others already
began to work on this. This would need coordinating with them

-Level 4 are packages which only *display* information during a
default install. This involves very important packages such as dpkg
and apt....translating them is obviously a good progress but less
important from the installer point of view

There is nearly no bg translation here....

Yes, I didn't touch levels 3 and 4 mainly because I decided that there is no enough time to translate them. And since RC2, I actually consider d-i somewhat "freezed" and I didn't translate anything. I need a way to see translations in action but I still haven't found an easy way.

It would be very good if d-i bg translation is completely proof-read. Spelling is very good, but spelling is definately not enough for good translation. I'm just not sure if translation changes can be made into sarge d-i, e.g. to base-config. I know Anton Zinoviev personally (we are co-workers but in very different departments) and we talked about the Bulgarian translation. That's why he sometimes asks Joey if there is chance for translators to fix their "100%" translations ;-)

The install manual is also to be translated even if it may sound late
for sarge release.

A lot of work ;-)

So, basically, this need to be talked with Ognyan and others, I guess.

Ognyan, do you have a mailing list where all bg translators coordinate
their work. If you don't, this is maybe time for requesting a

Yes, dict@linux.zonebg.com <http://linux.zonebg.com/> is the list of all Bulgarian translators. We are small community and better not create other mailing lists.

About new translations, I think it's good if Release Notes are translated. I translated the NetBSD 2.0 anouncement and it would be a shame if Debian Sarge Release Notes are not translated ;-) I'll definately mail to Rumen Krasstev about this.
