Description

Migrating from #wp19884... comment 2 has the best summary:

Translating a theme isn't something that everyone can easily do - and so aggregating the translation efforts for all the themes in Extend is, I think, something we all want to encourage.

While eventually themes might get plugged in to GlotPress, they aren't right now.

Some themes already come bundled with specific language files, but this information is not usually displayed unless the theme authors added it to the theme description.

A relatively quick fix is to add meta information about existing translations to the readme.txt file and add this to front end.

If we did this in the themes directory and announced it to theme developers, I'm sure some would do it. Per @nacin, language packs only indirectly help. We'll still want to do something on the front end.

(We'll also probably want this feature in the plugins directory as well.)
