Sorry, I meant he thinks his translations can't get into the database
directly, and knowing there aren't some specific reviewers, so he thinks
his translations will get ignored. Actually, all those translations in
zh_CN *are* ignored unless they fake three people (changing account, ip
address, etc), we don't have three people working on DDTSS at any time.

Reviewing is easier, but the web UI design has silently suggested them
to translate, AFAIK.
