thanks for your interest and help.
You've motivated us to add the es.po and translation functionality immediately
to the CVS :-)

It would be great if you could take over the task for spanish and
french. The easiest way to keep the stuff up-to-date is to update
the po-file from the CVS and send us the cvs diff. We can then
easily add the patch.

For new Thuban releases we drop a note on this list so that
the translators can update the po-files to have up-to-date translations
included in the release.

We'll do the german translation. So with spanish, french, german and
english we will have already quite a nice i18n support for Thuban 0.3 :-)
