I have been in touch with Xubuntu developers. They do not pull new
translations into 8.04.
Most likely to have missing translations in 8.04 to be pulled, you need
to file a bug report and point to the tarball.

I find this rather strange due to strings should be treated outside code
like they do in Gnome / Ubuntu. Another fact is that it will be same
desktop environment in 8.04 and 8.10.

So to my suggestions. do the translation and then file a bug report on

Best regards
