It's not -- there are hooks for translations in the engine
but there's apparently quite some need for web development
to employ it (and probably fix along the way).  I don't know
if anyone volunteers, and so far didn't manage to either help
someone do that or do by myself.

Bootloader-related stuff was reworked a bit somewhere closer to
5.0 in mkimage-profiles-desktop but I don't clearly remember
whether it was *actually* fixed.  Have that on my TODO though
(for a year or so, cough).
