(I'm unsure whether this answer made it to gnucash-devel, hence CC: to there)

No, but this particular case is precisely why I was hesitating to add a 
de_CH.po translation into gnucash. Yes, the recently added de_CH.po 
translation should be patched accordingly as well. No, this shouldn't be 
Rolf's business but instead the business of the de_CH.po maintainer, whom I 
specifically asked whether he is willing to do this job and he accepted this 
job. I think he will provide a de_CH.po patch pretty soon, but it's fine if 
this takes 1-2 weeks. 

(If no de_CH.po patch were supplied by a de_CH maintainer, we would have to 
discuss again the point of a separate de_CH translation, but for now I'd give 
him a bit of time.)

So far no external translation tool was able to set up gnucash translations 
correctly because of our importing of the translation message from C source 
code, Scheme source code, and GConf schema files.
