Well if it dont say any where how to be added on the list then that 
could be changed so translators can know how to get on the list.

Or instead of a long of all the translators it could say something like 
... look in the individual po files to see who translated the different 

Then translators can keep the header updated them self.

Just an idea. Not saying its the best thing to do.

I guess sometimes it can be good to see a long list but i think most 
times i am only looking to see how translated the software into the 
language i am using.

But if someone adds information about how to get added to the lists on 
https://www.geany.org/Contribute/Translators then that would be ok.
