You can get your translations in after the feature freeze. If you're quick and 
the maintainer is quick at updating the package, you can even get them tagged 
for the beta (ask rel-eng). Otherwise, they'll hit Rawhide just after the beta 
(or as soon as they're built if that's later) and make it into the RC and final 
release.

The feature freeze is intended to apply to new features and to some extent new 
package versions (bugfix updates are OK after the freeze, major updates not 
really, especially for the packages at the core of the distribution), not 
translation updates. It also coincides with the beta freeze, but exemptions 
(i.e. tagging requests for the beta) are possible and missing the beta isn't 
that big a deal.
