Added by andrejz:

* Work with Launchpad team to fix some of the more Criticall Launchpad translations bugs (one that i personally find very annoying is https://bugs.launchpad.net/launchpad/+bug/869824, but I am sure Gabor is aware of many more). Some of this bugs have been known to exist
* Bring universe translations in Launchpad - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Translations/Universe_Translations_in_LP
