[Translators-l] Translation credit

Hi, forgive me for asking this, but what's the policy for crediting a translation? For example, the Indonesian landing page is http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/WMFJA026/id  With a little research we can find that the source is http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Template:2010/JimmyLetterK/id, but when you look at it's history, there's no link to the actual translation page, i.e. http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fundraising_2010/Jimmy_appeal_2/id, thus it seems that Klyman is the one who did the translation. I suppose he should've at least mention where the translation was taken from. Or is there another rationalization?

Just a gentle reminder:  we have an appeal from Jimmy up at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fundraising_2010/Translation .  This one will be pushed out to all wikis, so we really need it localized as much as possible, please... any help you can give is gratefully appreciated.
