Thank you. All with the help of input from EOWG...

OK, I will consider this aspect for the next iteration.

For finalized translation the link points to the actual translation. 
This is currently the case for Hungarian and Portuguese.

By using a nested list, and listing the authorized translation first. 
I've done something similar for the French translation, where we soon 
expect a "Candidate Authorized Translation" to be available for review.

Note: if the additional translations are for language variants then they 
would be listed separately. This is the case for Portuguese/Brazil for 
instance. The may also be a Spanish/Latin America some time.


Thanks,
