Not only from March, but from March 2016!

Good! So the first step would be that you try exporting a language 
(likely German in you case) from Pootle to SDF and check how it looks.

While I assumed Pootle was aligned with 4.1.x (no strings are added 
within the 4.1.x series) Ariel did some work in early 2017 and found out 
that actually Pootle reflects some other, not perfectly clear, status of 

Anyway, the first action I suggest is:

1) Download German PO files from (you 
will need to login; I've just given you permission to download the PO 
files in case you didn't have them)

2) Convert the PO files to SDF; search "sdf" in for documentation

3) Compare the files you obtain with those at
(note: it's a huge text file, use some reliable editor)

4) You can also build the AOO414 branch -or trunk- with the new SDF if 
you want to have some fun.

This is a first check to understand how stuff works and the translation 
status. Feel free to open a new dedicated discussion for follow-up if 
you need some more information. Note that I only know the high-level 
steps but I'm not familiar with details, so some documentation digging 
will still be needed.
