Yes, unfortunately, Translation memory now fails most of the time for me. It 
seems to work only for small on 1-word sentences. Copy-pasting from previous 
tech news is annoying but it's the best solution I could find as well.

It's because the line was added after I marked the page for translation. As 
usual, I will finalize the text today, mark it for translation and follow up on 
the list, and that sentence will become translatable.

I really should remove that one. It's only used as a description for the 
deadline link, which is why is disappears once the newsletter is published. 
It's very optional, and I didn't realize the lack of translation memory made 
this one particularly annoying, so I'll remove it in future editions.

Thank you all for your comments :) Let me know if there is anything else I can 
improve to make translation easier.
