I handle the PyHoca-GUI de translation myself. I would be happy if you  
could take over x2goclient and other Qt based subprojects in X2Go Git  
(only on calls for translations that get posted on this x2go-i18n  
mailing list).

PyHoca-GUI / poedit: Yes, strings that need an update are printed in  
bold font variant. Strings may either be untranslated or ,,fuzzy''  
(means: inaccurate, because the original string has changed in the  

x2goclient / linguist: in linguist-qt4 strings that need work are  
marked by a question mark.

Because they need an update! :-)

For x2goclient, leave that to the English translator. That is: the  
English translator translates Alex Russion-English (which is great!!!)  
into Oxford-English (which then will be perfect!!!).

For PyHoca-GUI, please send your ideas / input to me (via x2go-i18n  
ML) and I take your proposal into consideration.

Please mainly focus on x2goclient (and other Qt parts of X2Go -- later  
-- on request only). Any ideas for PyHoca-GUI are welcome and will be  
implemented by me.
