Good question... Most programmers I know prefer to use the English
version of most programs. However, there are some people who are super
happy to find programs speaking their native language and for them it
matters a lot.

I haven't heard anything from the guy who requested the Russian langauge
team on transifex, so you should just go ahead.

We're not really using transifex much -- we used to use it to see
statistics about how complete each translation is, but they've changed
the site so that it no longer pulls automatically from Bitbucket. I
should update the instructions in the wiki.
