Dear translators

We are quite close for the release of GNU Health 3.2.0

At this point, we need to focus on translating the new strings, and to
work on the main, "neutral" languages that will be used from 3.2 onwards

The main languages to be shipped in 3.2 are :

ar : Arabic
el : Greek
es : Spanish
fr : French
de : German
lo : Lao
ru : Russian
it_IT : Italian (code compatiblity on the existing Tryton)
ja_JP : Japanese (code compatiblity on the existing Tryton)
zn_CH : Simplified Chinese (code compatiblity on the existing Tryton)

Derivative / regional languages : Maintainers of regional languages
(eg, es_ES, es_PE, .. ) should *ONLY* contain the strings that are
specific for the region, not the whole translation file. 

My recommendation is to focus on the completion of the neutral
languages, and once this is done, we can put the effort on the strings
specific for the language. We need to have a 100% on the main languages.

Of course, you can always install the latest version of the translation
using the command gnuhealth-control getlang

In addition, please note that we will be using the generic language
code ("es", "ru", "lo" ... ) for most languages. Translators should be
using this code, and not the old one. The old code (eg, es_PE,
ru_RU, ... ) are only to store the region-specific strings. We will
reset them.

To simplify things, the main tarball, distribution, will contain the
neutral official languages, leaving up to the user to install
additional languages with the gnuhealth-control tool.

All the best
