Thanks for all the patches. I'll probably work on merging them later  
during the week.

As for the translations, we had all the strings translated by an  
outside company, though it is true that they did translate sometimes  
literally, not knowing about the context of the application. I don't  
think it's really a big deal, but feel free to submit a patch for that  
as well if you think it will look better.
