Indeed, localization must be one of the key aspect to motivate transition.
It is easy to imagine that if no option available for an user's choice
of language then the user likely drop the interest, or that if
translation quality and/or consistency are poor then user can be confused.
Btw, no one on the list of 'L10N/GroupSponsors'  from Icelandic team.
Would you and/or your team coordinator like to be upgraded and sponsor
new comer for your team?
Finally got in contact with Richard Allen (FAS: RichardAllen
and/or Ra ?) which is registered team coordinator for
Icelandic. As he's a bit out of the game now, I think it's
best if I take on the role of sponsoring new translators.
