There's no infrastructure in place to do translations for KDevelop 3.4, 
which is why the message freeze wasn't put in place when the feature

If you can convince somebody to give it the needed attention to explain 
how to set it up that doesn't involve hacking on the translation script 
that's run on the KDE servers to update the translation files.
