Dear Paul
I'm a member of the eXtenZilla.it team ( http://www.extenzilla.it ): our goal is to provide as many as possible italian translations of extensions and documentation about Mozilla.org; we are also supporting Mozilla software (Firefox, Thunderbird and Suite) as admins/moderators of the italian forum on http://forum.mozillaitalia.org

Since I'm also an enthusiastic user of Tranlate, I've created the it-IT localization for 0.5.6 version translating the en-US locale contained in the original XPI package.

As I said before, in the near future we're planning to make italian translations of the most popular and used extensions: so, if you need it-IT locale don't esitate to contact me at jooliaan[at]extenzilla[dot]it or the eXtenZilla team at info[at]extenzilla[dot]it

I'll be glad if you would add it to your extension allowing us italian users to enjoy in this way your extension directly in our mother language.

For this reason, I'm sending you the link to the repacked extension already containing that locale and working fine.

I hope you will appreciate my small effort done trying to contribute to your great project and in the meantine I even hope you would publish also the new version containing the italian locale.

I must have gotten your localized version of Translate because FireFox popped up with Translate 0.5.7 and you haven't even commented on it yet. XD.

0.5.7 fixes the context menu, which was broken in 0.5.6 and updated the babelfish url after a user comment about the original one.

I'll be releasing 0.5.8 shortly which will add the Italian localisation mentioned above. BTW, thanks very much for this.
