I expect Sayamindu can probably give a better talk than me on this.
But I'm willing to give a short talk on "translation things I'd like
to see in 9.1":
    *  "multiple languages, multiple places": translation system
should look in local, then activity, then system translation tables,
then repeat for each in a set of fallback languages (eg, quechua,
spanish, english)
    * separable translation packs
    * "click-to-translate": wiki-like editing of translatable labels in the UI

Time permitting, I might be able to give a demo of
"click-to-translate" for unmodified GTK apps, based on the journal
embedding work I recently did.
