The translation upload process isn't obvious enough

Bug #60939 reported by Milosz Tanski
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

Basically Rosetta makes me feel like I'm slow, let me explain...

Whenever I'm trying to upload anything I never know if I'm uploaded an update to one of the translations or a new template. It's not explicit enough... you go upload something, you look at it couple hours later and 50% of the time it ends up as the wrong one. So I go the the #launchpad channel and the people there are always like "you clicked the wrong link." They always fix it for me, and then I feel like I'm basically not smart enough to use Rosetta :'(

I'm sure this is pretty common theme, since whenever I ask how do I do anything rather then have Rosetta lower my self-esteem, the people in the channel never tell me where to go but alway give me a url or a url offset from my launchpad project root.

The solution would be to say explicitly: "Upload an update to the current template" & "Upload a NEW template", "Upload updated translation file(s)"

Btw, it's a great tool, it just needs UI love.
