With the exception that everyone here can read code and not everyone
here can read, say, Korean.

What if somebody checks in a change to a previous translation in a
language where noone in the community is capable of reviewing it? Do
you just assume it is ok, until a bug is reported against the message?
For expediency's sake that seems like the thing to do, but we might
want to enshrine that as policy, so that if the question arises in the
future, somebody can point back and say the decision was made to
accept all contributions of translated materials even if there is no
one capable of actually reviewing the content.

Just a thought...  :-)
