A small tip: to find most MediaWiki: messages that haven't yet been 
translated, view the HTML source of [[Special:Allmessages]] and search 
the source code for the following string:

	" class="new" title="MediaWiki:

This will lead you to any redlinked pages in the MediaWiki namespace, 
and the trailing colon ensures that you skip over any talk pages. I 
found Niklas' "Internationalisation news" a lot more useful for finding 
out about recent interface changes, but if you find that your wiki has 
some catching-up to do, this is the way to go.
