this is a great idea! it might make sense to prepare a list of english terms and a nice script, that would find the current transtlations (most of them) from the file. or maybe do that for all languages, so that translators would only have to edit stuff...
well, if you think this'd be a good idea, i can do it rather quickly (i some of you also probably)..

i will definetly fill this out until autumn...
