Many thanks to the translators, new and long-standing, who’ve been working to get the message catalogs updated for 3.x!

But we need a lot more help for the many translations whose past translators have moved on.
The following translations are seriously out of date:
Language                      Last translation:
Spanish (Nicaragua):      2001-10-22
*Azerbaijani:                 2001-11-27
*Kinyarwanda:               2005-04-04
*Basque:                       2005-08-05
Nepali:                         2006-08-21
Vietnamese:                 2007-12-29
Hebrew:                        2009-04-21
Korean:                         2009-07-15
*Chinese (Simplified):    2010-07-13
Polish:                          2010-09-07
Hungarian:                   2011-07-30
Bulgarian:                    2011-10-25
*Czech:                        2012-03-29
Chinese (Traditional):   2012-05-13

The translations marked with * are managed by The Translation Project [1]. Please contact the TP team--the email address should be in the catalog (po) file--before you start work, but if they seem unwilling to work with you by all means contact us either on one of the mailing lists or IRC.
