Hi Bryan,

I'm not an expert here either. One thing I think they will look for are 
places where two strings are concatenated, each of which is 
independently localized. That's a practice which often results in a poor 
experience for non-English readers. They may also look for mistakes 
using single quotes with message arguments; that can wreak havoc with 
MessageFormat; however, I think we cleaned up those problems last year. 
They might look for missing and bad translations too.
