My concern is that if there was 5½ years between 4.12 and 4.14 it seems 
like if i miss something like a spelling mistake in the translation i 
might have to wait another 5½ years for the next release to fix it.

I dont know about 4.12.X.
It seems Xfce About always says 4.12 no matter what version i use.

But last say we skip to the 4.14 release and then i make new changes to 
the translation. How long will it take until those new changes gets into 
a Xfce release?

How come on https://xfce.org/ it says the latest news is 4.12 if there 
have been 4.12.x releases after that?

Well i would like it all updated so when Xfce 4.14 is release all the 
software is using the latest translations.
But i dont have a good idea of what is updated and what is not.
