The PO files were made available to translators but since we should be 
done with it I'm not sending the link now. As for tools, PO files can be 
managed with anything, from POEdit to Lokalize to GNU Emacs (in PO mode) 
to actually any text editor.

A lot of people, including all volunteers that are now helping to 
deliver the Polish translation, joined very recently; it is very likely, 
and actually already in the works, that we we make some guidelines for

request you will receive. This way you will always be up-to-date on the 
OpenOffice localization activities.
