I thought the string freeze was to allow the translators time to work
and finish translations prior to release without the strings
themselves changing out from underneath them (thus leading to
mistranslated stuff)?

Looking at the schedule, we're allowing until 10-21 for the
translation deadline.  Maybe the original poster (or I) am confused?

I don't think so, the final 3 weeks are hectic enough as is.
