Comment 1 for bug 607141

I believe it would be best to make upstream make use of gettext in a standard way (or at all), so the best course of action should probably be reporting the bug upstream and link it to this bug.

At the moment, as we are shipping the translations and they are being used, I'm going to mark this as Low priority. As per the proposed solution:

-stop distributing the .mo files
-- we should see if they can be blacklisted in langpack-o-matic
-add cups to the https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NonLanguagePackTranslationDeadline page, and export translations before Maverick is out.
-- I agree
