I think it's a huge improvement!

I'm not sure what "that page" and "we" refer to here. The timespan is
roughly the same as the one that was given in the announcements for
the September, October, November and December "Wikimedia Highlights"
on this list. And most of the previous translations were in fact done
within just a few days. At the moment, two days before the given date,
five translations for the current issue are already 100% complete. Of
course translations continue to be welcome after that announcement,
it's just that they won't benefit from the added attention that comes
with it.

An alternative would be to announce each translation separately as it
is completed, but one has to be mindful of the readers of
Wikimediaaanounce-l, who signed up to a list which is meant to be low
volume/high relevance.
