Ok. Some of these strings are localized, but not sync'ed in the .lang
file (my bad, and there's no automatic extraction of these at this
point). Some others are not localized. Will be done, but I can't say
when yet.

Agreed. My bad then; but please be more specific then on issues (such
as here), it's important to know precisely what is wrong to fix it.
(that, actually, supports point 1. - the source code is all available,
but at this point, we don't have a full time role on this and I won't
be around long on the Web site either).
