At first I have to apologize as I should have seen it earlier. Unfortunately, I still have no much time available. There are changes in TP 0.9.8 language files that will affect functionality and will cause problems in use with other languages, if not properly translated.
The main problem is
that, while the text remains the same in the same line, the number in the text parameter name
for article options changes in TP 0.9.8.
The only language file changed in TP 0.9.8 is TPortalAdmin.english.php
The main changes are
$txt['tp-articleoptions9'] = 'Show all articles in same category';
$txt['tp-articleoptions10'] = 'Show links to other categories';
$txt['tp-articleoptions11'] = 'Show all articles in same category';
$txt['tp-articleoptions12'] = 'Show links to other categories';
$txt['tp-articleoptions11'] = 'Show comments underneath article';
$txt['tp-articleoptions14'] = 'Show number of views';
$txt['tp-articleoptions15'] = 'Show ratings';
$txt['tp-articleoptions12'] = 'Allow to comment?';
$txt['tp-articleoptions13'] = 'Do not collapse comments initially';
$txt['tp-articleoptions16'] = 'Allow to rate?';
$txt['tp-articleoptions13'] = 'Show comments underneath article';
$txt['tp-articleoptions16'] = 'Show number of views';
$txt['tp-articleoptions17'] = 'Show ratings';
$txt['tp-articleoptions14'] = 'Allow to comment?';
$txt['tp-articleoptions15'] = 'Do not collapse comments initially';
$txt['tp-articleoptions18'] = 'Allow to rate?';
The _UNTRANSLATED language files are not corrected so translated files by experienced translators were wrong, while new translations are OK, as they were done from beginning.There are also a few other changes
that don't affect functionality. If necessary, I will make a full list.They can be found easily with an ASCII compare of the english files used for translation and the files in the released version
The changes in numbers can be corrected but some others can't be without knowledge of the language.
ADD ON: Other changes in TPortalAdmin.english.php that will need changes of translation in language files
. They are not include in UNTRANSLATED files.

We had a team discussion about this. Bloc decided that a translator can add a comment in line 2 of each TP language
file in the form
// [Language name] translation by [Tranlator(s) name(s)]
This is for version TP 0.9.8.
