Hello, please use xfce-i18n ML unless you want to know
my gender/age/income/private operations on going.

If you, translators, want I can import Terminal.pot to the

You're correct, that `image' folder is supposed to store
localized screenshots for the users in that language.
The reason `doc/ja/images' has English screenshots is

  a. I'm lazy.
  b. I'm still lazy.
  c. I'd like to be lazy.
  d. I'm going to be lazy.

or I'm waiting for both of the strings and theme (defaults
in Xfce 4.4) finally get official (I don't want to take a
screenshot again and again).

You should revise the translation first; check the consistency
all over the translations in Traditional Chinese in Xfce,
then try to translate the user manual, after that, try to
take the screenshots.

There's no handy `screen-shooter' for the images used in the
user manual, you have to take care of the order above,
otherwise your works can be useless.

It's up to you, I only want;

  a. PO file translated.
  b. Screenshots in that language.

Under the current mechanism, if Benedikt will change the
images in C, a line corresponding to the image in zh_TW.po
will get `fuzzy', therefore, you can know which image
will be needed to retake.

Probably, sometimes, a completeness requests that original
document should be revised.

Your translations are welcomed, keep your efforts.
