I extracted the translatable strings out of the svn code with
an ugly and simple python script.

This is quite annoying problem. Users will see the low quality of the
user interface when English and some other language are mixed. Not only
long messages and some forms are hardcoded but also some small parts of
larger items. Even I previously thought that Finnish translation is
buggy, but now I see that it's impossible to make a good one (though
it's better now).

This is due to usage of Delphi files with hardcoded strings. Could they
be localized?
