   Yes, and Firefox has localized versions for Bengali(bn-IN), Bahasa 
Indonesia, Malay, Hindi, and Urdu.  So the strings to translate would be 
only for the Tor-specific interfaces.

   I guess what I'm really asking is what's the process for supporting 
additional languages?  Would adding additional languages add too much 
overhead to release cycles?
