Although the origin of the english strings are from the developers,
and they are focused in producing code and fixing bugs more than
writing beautiful english, it may be necessary that we - the
community and in a continuous process - start reviewing the
linguistics in english.

Three months ago I have asked similar question here. Precisely: what to
do with English string that could be improved[0]? I got few other
suggestions on how to improve that string, but nothing was done.

Also, Polish translation is periodically changed without our knowledge
and consent. Last time I remember someone has superseded all "Liczba"
with "Ilość" (first one is for countable, second for uncountable; it's
like changing "many" to "much" in English). There were some releases
that embarrass Polish translation team before we have learned about this

Why do I say that? Because these are the reasons that makes
me not believe in success of this initiative. Translating LibreOffice
was ungrateful in the past and I think that this time it will not only
be enormous task, but also no one will say "thank you" and in few
months someone will carelessly waste all that has been accomplished.

I don't mean to discourage anyone from helping, but I do know that
there are people here that feel the same way.

Nevertheless, I wish you best luck and I would love to be proved wrong.

Best regards
Mirosław Zalewski
