It's not that huge, 2540 strings to be precise, please see for details  
http://gaim.sourceforge.net/i18n/ .

Well, they certainly freeze the libraries' section and that is the only  
one of direct interest for us, the Xfce translators. I think we should  
make sure that glib, gtk+, gtk+-properties and atk are translated for  
Xfce to have a fully localized interface (gdm may also be of interest  
as it is a login manager without gnome dependencies). Please correct me  
if I missed anything.

.ro is for Romania, and Romanian is a latin language like French,  
Spanish or Italian. "Good luck!" in Romanian is "Noroc!".
