Makes sense.

Remind me again where GL2 will keep the translated text strings - in
language files or in the database?

Anyway, I seem to remember that when there's no translation for a string,
it would use the english text, so there's no problem with keeping things

That would be okay then (and would get rid of one of the annoyances in
the 1.3 design).
