This is how KDE does it, but they also bundle many programs in a
single "package" or "module" so they can get away with seperating the
i18n stuff. This method is not what Xfce does, and certainly cannot be
As it was pointed, ubuntu does it with some main packages , but only
for the version they ship, and you have to use rosetta if you want to
update the translations.
So, currently, as most packaging systems stand, seperating translations
from the program cannot be done easily or in a clean way.
