Semi-OT for this thread: if you're doing some or most translations from 
scratch or with new translators (Finnish and German were mentioned so 
far), why not use translatewiki.net directly? New translators don't have 
to fight with old habits and on translatewiki.net you don't need to send 
files around and ask such questions.

> I have only one question at this point: To whom do I send the files when
> I'm done?
> Cheers,
