Hi Ari 67 and thanks for taking the time to report this bug.
We will look into this problem and try to solve it.

------------
Below is just a note for further investigating this problem:

Kover is part of the Ubuntu Universe Repository and it is not available for translation via Launchpad Translations.

https://edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/karmic/+source/kover

It looks like the upstream release contains some PO files, including DE http://lisas.de/kover/

We need to investigate why they are not available in Ubuntu

I have added the required cmake file and scripts to include the translations in the binary package.

I have also send an email to the kover developers

I got an email from Adrian Rebel telling me the patch was accepted and applied upstream.

Maybe we need a MOTU to update the package in Ubuntu.

Good work Adi.

If you think this is worth a stable release update, I'd recommend preparing a debdiff with the fixes, and following the procedure at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates.

Adi Roiban (adiroiban) wrote :

I don't think this is an valid candidate for SRU.

Since the translations were not imported, they were also no longer maintained and for example the Kover translation for de is not complete.

We can have it fixed in Lucid

This bug was fixed in the package kover - 1:4-11

---------------
kover (1:4-11) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Rename the PACKAGE and VERSION macros to K_PACKAGE and K_VERSION, like
    it was done upstream: this fixes the KDE name and version of the
    application, so configuration files, translations, etc, are properly
    loaded; patch fix-PACKAGE-VERSION.diff.
  * Rewrite copyright as copyright-format v1.0, and update it.
  * Set the cmake minimum version required and policies; cmake-policy.diff.
