I don't think you got much response because your requested improvement would require changes to Drupal and we're not all that well equipped in that area. As far as I know, all of the Drupal upgrades have been done and I still can't find a way of listing or filtering by language on the recent changes page.
It does look like there may be some motivation to make sure that we're on the latest localizer
I don't think that we have a channel to communicate with existing translators other than this list. I wonder if there's some way we could query the database for all people in translator or higher roles, and extract their email addresses? In general, I think that having content authors add the language that they're editing in wouldn't be a bad idea, but I don't usually like solutions that require people to remember to do things, and other people to police them :)

Hi list !
As a translator for the french speaking LC, I just jumped when I saw this!
All is not fine and the big issue here is more about lack of translators...
But, I think there is still some improvements that can be done quite easily (I guess!) : I asked a few months ago if it's possible to add a filter in the "recent changes" page. I wanted (and I still want) to filter content by locale. I'm copying what I already said : " As more and more people are translating the website, having the possibility to sort recent changes by locale (and just select english one for example) would make it easier for translators to deal with changes, translate news, events, etc."
Tyler answered me that " There is an update to the translation module that will be tested sometime soon on our test server."
Any news from this ?
By the time all this is set (hopfully), is it possible to ask every contributors - even the english ones - to simply add the language in the log message? I'm already doing this and I since we always add a comment, it's not very painfull to add the 2 letters of the language!
What do you think about this proposal?
