I am the Lithuanian translator. Though I have sent my translation before
0.7.11, it was not included. I do not know if it is correct translation. I
do not want to compile the whole Abiword just to check the translation.
There is no way to know If I have translated all the strings. I have to edit
the code instead of just translating, as I am used to. I cannot use any
tools for updating, testing, merging, editing, spell-checking the
transaltions. I do not even know, if Abiword supports iso-8859-13 charset.
Earlier it did no work with this. Now it displays @'s instead of accented

Even editing windows applications' resource files is easier, though
distributing translations is a pain.
I haven't met any other program which was so hard to translate. Although I
know, that 0.7.12 release is approaching, most likely my translations won't
be ready. I have easier things to do.
