I've found the problem and fortunately only two strings were affected.
The large number of untranslated strings in the Czech version of the
book were due to an unrelated problem with my local Zanata
configuration. I've fixed it and all translated strings have been
restored to the Czech version except for the two affecting all books.
The files and strings are:
Download_Fedora.po : "The image file for the Fedora 17 live CD is
Download and save this file to your computer."
Boot_your_computer_from_the_CD.po : "Either press *Enter* to select the
*Start Fedora 17* option, or wait for the countdown to expire. "
The version number of Fedora was causing the problem in each case. I'm
unsure why, because the po files were outdated even though I've
refreshed them since I last worked on these strings myself in en-US.
So - and I do apologise - I will have to ask those who were working on
the Czech, Dutch, Italian, and Ukrainian guides to revisit these po
files and translate these two strings again. I have uploaded the
refreshed pot files, so the po files are now awaiting completion in all
The other strings in these files are still intact, so the required work
is fortunately minimal.
I'm very sorry for the inconvenience, especially after announcing the
publication of your completed work. On the bright side, I have replaced
the Fedora version number in these strings with the PRODVER entity (as
it always should have been), so you won't need to touch these strings to
update the version number again.
Thanks again for your hard work, especially in unexpected cases like this.

Yikes, I spoke too soon. The problem seems to be multi-faceted: while
I don't have some of the translated strings despite having pulled
everything from Zanata, I also DO have some of the other translated
strings that are nonetheless being displayed in English too.
I'm looking into this and will keep you informed.
