"The official rule for release versions says around 90% of kdelibs.pot,
100% of desktop_kdelibs.pot and desktop_kde-i18n.pot and around 75% of
kdebase should be translated in order to get into a release. But,
usually, it is up to the team coordinators to decide when their language
is "ready for release" and to report it as such to the people in charge
of the release."
90% kdelibs CHECK 90.75
100% desktop_kdelibs NO 77.81% (156 more strings to go)
100% kde-i18n CHECK 100%
75% kdebase NO 63.12% (1254 more strings to make 75%, 3893 to choose from)
So it looks like we need 1410 strings translated to get to the official
rule for release.
My Irish is also next to useless so I wouldn't dare translate anything!
Actually, having a look in desktop_kdebase.po which is part of kdebase
and has 409 translated stings, I think I spot some things even I can
"KDE Box" => "Bosca KDE"
There seem to be some other "easy" targets in there?
Just for a fun aside, while a googling my way along the interweb I
discovered an irish translation company who will do a 10000 word english
to irish technical document for €1650 :-)
