Bug Description

Libreoffice launcher icons have got a "New document", "New spreadsheet", etc. entry added to their Unity quicklists.

This particular entry is not internationalized and appears always in English (see attached screenshot).

I can think of two ways of solving this:

1. Marking the strings for translation and providing a .pot file as part of the libreoffice package build, that can be imported into Launchpad for translators to do their work. Translations can then be shipped in the regular language packs.

2. Do a call for translations each cycle, similar to what we do already for the Firefox and Thunderbird desktop files, and manually put the received translations in the libreoffice desktop files.

I'd suggest 1., as it's the most automated way and allows us to update translations independently from the libreoffice package.

These quicklists entries are translated upstream (I have done it) but for some reason these translations seem not to be shipped in Ubuntu packages.

It seems that no translations are included in the .desktop files. Looking at e.g. /usr/share/applications/libreoffice-writer.desktop

LibreOffice 4/raring is released and has these available for translation at:
