[Translators-l] Translations requested: "showing results from"

Hi Stryn,

We really only need these languages to be translated for:

Portuguese: PT, EN, RU, HE, AR, ZH, KO, EL
Japanese: JA, EN, RU, KO, AR, HE

As those are the only languages that we're looking for on the PT and JA
wiki sites in order to determine if the user typed in one of those
languages. We didn't enable the feature for ALL languages.

Hope that helps!
