thanks for this feedback, I wasn't aware of this numbers and it seems 
that my own expectations are higher than what we had before. I am open 
for that and we can reduce the numbers but doesn't it make sense to have 
100% for UI and a lower number like the 80-85% for help. Help is not so 
important from my point view (who never used help and preferred google) 
but I think the UI should be complete.

I am eager to learn from others and their experience and we should 
define together some boundaries for the future.

Exactly that is what I have in mind we will only ship languages where 
volunteers have shown up so far.
