[Openstack-i18n] IBM translations to contribute: update

Hi, team 

I have made enough tests on the test server with the help from Doug and 
his colleagues.

In the test server, I created versions for nova, glance, cinder, swift, 
heat, keystone, and ironic. Doug and his colleagues uploaded their po 
files for 
languages de, es, fr, it, ja ko-KR, pr-BR, ru, zh-CN, and zh-TW. I tested 
two versions. Things are running well. The test server is still in good 
So there is no technical issues block me to do the same in the production 
I even tried "Group" in the test server. The "Group" feature looks 

So if there is no objections, I will go to production server, doing the 
same as 
what I did in the test server.

Best regards
Ying Chun Guo (Daisy)
