Investigating a bit the other translations (es, fr, de) on GitHub, it 
seems that most translators treat "barscale" the same as "scalebar". So 
I'll do the same.
Nevertheless, to me such discrepancies seem like a bug, which I will 
report in the bugtracker (hopefully soon).

Thanks, I think 
will be a good point of entry.

This is about the source code, not specifically Icelandic.

This is really interesting, thanks again.

Well, we are at 50% since yesterday when I pushed my last changes. That 
is 50% of the number of strings, counting words it's nearer to 25% ;-(
There used to be a release for Icelandic some years ago (before 
transifex?), you can get still that from conservative repositories like 
Ubuntu which has QGIS v.2.0.1

But for QGIS v.2.18 and in the git.repo, Icelandic is absent.
I have to roll my own qgis_is.qm and drop it to the i18n-directory to 
test my translations, works really well.
The primary interface and menus are done, secondary dialogs and most 
configuration options are well advanced; expert options and popups are
