Package descriptions are translated in the ddtp-ubuntu pseudo-package, see


  • Nightmonkey is much more efficient for focused translation on important packages.

The descriptions in Software Centre are called Package Descriptions and can be translated here: https://launchpad.net/ddtp-ubuntu

If you search certain packages, or easily want to filter stuff like 'only the short descriptions', you can use Nightmonkey: http://nightmonkey.ubuntu.hu/
