Dunno.  Do they have to support twenty different languages?

Can those translations only be started once the mainline 
English-language code has been frozen, because the strings in the 
English-language version are used as the keys for the translated 
versions of the strings in other the other languages?

There is one.  See FAQ 1.27.  It's secure enough that even I don't 
have access to it, although I'm sure that Barry, Mark, Tokio, and 
other critical people do.
