Not all packages will rebuild, only package, which have some
critical bugs will be rebuild, so it is good to fix translation before
14 Sept.

"5 September  FC6 Test3 Development Freeze" means String freeze
"14 September FC6 Test3 Release" Last date to submit string
but as string changes for anaconda and some other package, so
you can update string as Maintainer is building package again

if you find that your translation is major issue for your
language for any package, please file a bug against package
and ask maintainer to rebuild package or include translation in next
maintainers have to build all packages that contain even a single line
of updated translations.
Not included translations has always been a problem with fedora/redhat
translation project and it has to be fixed.
As dimitris pointed in his message it's not nice people volunteer
their time for nothing...
