It might be worth getting in touch with Giovanni about this, as he's
the translation lead for pacman, and probably knows more than most of
us about the ins-and-outs.

Needless to say, my first and only language is English (though I know
a tiny bit of french and japanese), but I also see this as important,
so I will do whatever I can to help you out where I can. Also, I can
translate to en_GB if you want (colour!)
