Or it is simply hidden behind so much other stuff as you wrote yourself.
Or related to a feature that is not completed in time to be tested
properly. Suse-specific translations come to mind, they are always
finished _very_ late in the process so that it is almost impossible to
report bugs against missing/incomplete/wrong translations early enough
for them to be fixed. Because finding a bug does not mean it gets fixed
early enough for GM.

My KDM login screen for example is partly in English. Missing
translations for KDM are neither a rare nor an insignificant issue. But
who reports a few untranslated words when there are many crash-bugs to
be reported? Especially since many beta-testers speak English well
enough to not even notice.
(Note: That one may be a bad example since it already got reported, see
bug #447066. But the point remains valid, e.g. for the boot menu or the
installer which are the first things that a new user sees of openSuse.)

Regards,
Eric.
Btw, you are not working properly, see bug #441560. ;-)

nordi
