Although statistics are missing, probably over 95% of localizations are
contributed by the community, and this is constantly affirmed in all the
presentations we are making around the world (I already did more than 20
during 2020, and I will do others before the end of the year).

project and the role of the community and its volunteers - nor can the l10n
effort be properly communicated in the press releases.
