[OpenStack-I18n] [I18n] project team status update regarding internationalization/translation as July 2019


Hello Motiki-san,

Thank you for your comments.
For undocumented stuff, I have just proposed a patch: 
https://review.opendev.org/#/c/673375/ .
And I am now collecting the statistics (it takes so long / is difficult 
due to unstable network connection from my side).
Let's see where we have such translators or not..


With many thanks,

/Ian
