And now we're at 30 new translators, 18 of whom made 5812 "edits"! 
They're all amusing. :)

We're notably missing, among our languages' "top 10": activity for 
Spanish, German, Russian; any translator for French, Portuguese, 
Chinese; and in top 20, Turkish, Swedish, Arabic, Czech, Indonesian, 
Ukrainian, Persian.

I also see that the following it urgently wanted:

mn Mongolian
am Amharic
lo Lao
ne Nepali
uz Uzbek
eu Basque
