The statistics can be all fine, it doesn't change that me (and others)
from time to time stumble upon translations that give us the yuck.

It's the whole point that I am stating: There is no way to reach the
producers of the sucking translations, and there is no way to reach the
"proofreading" clickers for such sucking translations.
But yes, if your only response is that it's sucking to read my
annoyance with the non-existing QA approach that the DDTSS lacks to
offer instead of actually doing something constructive like adding any
sort of real *direct* feedback option (instead of the small box below
the translations) - which would naturally also solve the issue with that
there is no author information about translations available, at all -
then I guess it's really the best approach to drop the translations from
the packages site. Will save the annoyance and the need to bring up the
topic. Noone seems to be interested in improving the situation, and I'm
not interested to push this low-quality approach down to our users.
Consider the case closed then, thanks for your helpful response.
