Judging by  http://bugs.scribus.net/trans/ ,  there has been no progress
regarding those languages. It's only an assumption, I don't really
_know_ it,  but, apart from Spanish, which is being taken care of, the
other gui translations mentioned above look pretty abandoned. Which is a
pity... There is a new feature request
http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=1066 , where interested native
speakers can find updated TS files for those languages (provided, they
want to work with ts files, which is only one of 2 available options).
This, and this very easy to follow translation howto
http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=1066 should give any interested user
a very, very easy start.  What do you think?
