I've done some localization work in Italian a couple of years ago at best,
at the time the localized GUI was in a good shape and the documentation was
halfway done, but of course most of this work is now outdated. The italian
user guide is lacking now and the GUI has some sore spots. If you're
looking for some work to do I'd focus my attention on the latter since
you'd find some solid ground to move on.
