It isn't necessary to review things by hand only. I wrote a page on the
wiki a while ago about testing i18n.  A big part of this is about
spotting strings not marked for translation:

It probably won't help developers to spot all errors, but maybe we can
avoid several, and work on raising our standards earlier in the release

I'm sure we'd all like to work together to find ways of improving things
without increasing the workload much for anyone involved.  Let's use the
tools that are available.

Keep well
