The problem is, we have same technical issue to add the files. We have 
to be carefull with the translation files We need exactly the right 
files. Else we will have a load of issues. Wrong translation files can 
finaly crash AOO. The point is simply that I have at the moment not the 
time to care about Pootle. The Release has a much heigher priority 
sorry. And it was not my Idea to bring out the Release so fast. My plane 
was also to setup all the translation before the Releas. But now we have 
just not the time for it. I'm also against translation change for 3.4. 
Only if realy nessesary. Translator can do other work at the Moment, 
like website translations. It's more important to get the native 
language page update atm.

Maybe Galvin has time, I don't know.
