Ok, I'll consider the language code issues unadressed for now then.

The issue should be at Transiflex import, because in our repositories
the PO files are in 8 bits.

The problem is that at least the template file uses octals. When looking at it now, it looks like the solution might as simple as just replacing the octals in the template file, but then we should be sure they're not introduced again the next time the template is generated.

* For maposmatic:

I haven't looked at maposmatic yet, but there might not be any issues there.
