.po files are not automatically updated. So if you see untranslated
strings for the audio cd stuff, then that's because that's under
active development, and I haven't yet updated the .po files. You can
always do so yourself by running "make update-po" in the po/ directory
(after running autogen.sh and configure).

That is likely to be the case as well, if the Estonian translation
does not show up. Maybe someone else can look into that issue.

My guess is that's unlikely, but I don't know Arch.

Thanks translating,
