That's what I did up to now. See the list attached for Polish.
For the common volunteer even a HTML file is too hard to understand, so
I only gave them the needed strings.

Since I am now concentrating on our Windows builds I would be happy if
someone could take over.
If needed I can provide files for all translatable strings (main and
download page).
