Looks like there were failures importing your changes:
Namely, line 5997 has an extra " at end of line.

Fix those up and re-upload.  Once that imports, you can export the
translations (see below) and look for new untranslated strings.

The .po file is sorted alphabetically.

If you export the translations from Launchpad as a tarball from
https://translations.launchpad.net/rt/4.4/+export , it will email you a
link.  Pass that link to:

    devel/tools/rt-message-catalog rosetta the-url-from-email-here

...and it will merge in the translations from Launchpad into your local
share/po/*.po files, preferring translations from launchpad but leaving
any new local translations.
