I have shortened the descriptions for wind speed so they mostly contain 
information solely related to the weather. This should make these 
strings a lot easier to translate. I've given a quick glance to the 
other units, but do not find them too long or difficult to translate.

An exact match is not needed here, as long as the meaning stays the 
same. I don't think encyclopedias do get translated literally ;-)

It's still a lot of work, but I'd be grateful for any help you can offer 
and will fill up any remaining parts in the last week before release. 
Until then I will be quite busy with fixing the last but unfortunately 
not really trivial bug (#9781).

I will not change the descriptions for the labels on the scrollbox page, 
as IMHO these give quite useful information about weather stuff and how 
some parts of the plugin work.
