 > 1. Easy: somewhere near the *.po import buttons, place a warning saying
 “If you submit a translation which was done automatically (like using
 Google Translate) and isn’t manually corrected, ALL the strings will be
 rejected, even if a lot of them came out correctly. If you did the whole

 accounts, for 2 weeks seems fine.
 > 3. Enable GTEs to bulk-remove all non-accepted translations made by a
 user for all projects at once.

 5. Temporarily blocking of contributors that make translations in

 6. Extend all these features to PTE's too.
 7. Notify of all corrective actions. For example: PTE's corrective actions
 is notified to GTE's -> GTE's corrective actions is notified to LM's ->
 LM's corrective actions is notified to Global Mentor's.
 8. Add the possibility to enable/disable this type of notifications

 9. Optionally report to themes/plugins review team the author that
 deliberalely make readme.txt or themes/plugins file in languages different
 from the en_US (this case make impossibility to PTE/GTE to make propery
 10. Optionally reject all Latin strings in English UK context (for
