Since nobody volunteered I went ahead and updated the PO file. It's here:


The archive contains both PO file and kdenlive.desktop with added Russian lines.

The translation is by no means complete, but it's a bump from 56% to
86%, so it's quite important and I hope it will be available in 0.7.8.

I also created some previously missing XML descriptions for MLT and
frei0r effects. They are here:


Hopefully I got them right :) Since Git version of frei0r contains
even more effects, I can do descriptions for the rest of them. But it
would be ultimately cool if option variants (usually appearing in
combo boxes) could be translatable as well. Otherwise many effects are
only half-translated which usually makes users sad and grumpy.
