Everything is in UTF-8, as recommended in the kde translations howto (and 
common sense).

The files are all available in SVN at 
http://ljklient.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/ljklient/trunk/ or alternatively 
you can download a source tarball or a .deb file (the latter will install 
the .mo's to their rightful place — /usr/share/locale/<lang>/LC_MESSAGES (the 
personal path is at ~/.kde/share/locale/<lang>/LC_MESSAGES)).

It appears that two of the “Don't” lines aren’t in the .mo file and neither is 
Query… (no idea whatsoever, I guess I’ll hit poEdit with a hammer), but many 
others are: Edit Friends…, Tags…, Don't e-mail comments are all present and 
offending the translation.

Thanks :)
