Well, assuming you get feedback, that might work. :)

For me, concistency is important (i.e., the same word or phrase is always
translated in the same way), and also that the translation works well in

Perhaps I should send you my svenska.lang? It's still a work in progress
though (there are some things I'm not entirely happy with).
