Translation update!

New week and time for an update regarding the translations for LXDE. During the last week some more users have started the translations in Pootle and by all means have delivered. Significant changes are noted in Danish that are 100% complete by now, good work!

If you are new to Pootle and/or translation in general take a look at the crash course at the LXDE wiki and then go grab some strings. Just some spare minutes are needed to make some languages 100% complete, others could benefit a great deal from just some minutes of work and that coul add up to a complete translation. Start with the low hanging fruit, skip LXPanel if you are not too familiar with doing translations.

By now the following languages are complete:
- Danish
- Indonesian
- Polish
- Portugese (Brazilian)
- Slovak
- Swedish

And in close range of 100% is the following:
- Arabic (one string marked fuzzy in LXPanel)
- Ukrainian (one string marked fuzzy in LXLauncher, in fact it is untranslated!)
- Czech is at 87% (only LXPanel left, over two thirds are already done)
- German at 84% (missing strings in LXPanel, LXLauncher and LXMusic. The last two is small and pretty easy to finish I guess)

For the other represented languages more actions are needed to make them complete, some are close to 80% with others only done in LXMenu-data that we have imported from GNOME.

Another video of an LXDE component by Maces. LXTask is the standard task manager and system monitor of LXDE. It starts via Ctrl+Alt+Del and is extremely lightweight.
