indeed, the maintainer of that Windows build (Markus Bergholz) said: "afaik you have to wait for 3.8.1 release."

not blaming anyone, but this is a catch-22 situation for translators -- I wish it were possible to test/run it live before it's released, at which time it's too late to make any corrections.

pls close this report;  I'll deal with the lost translations in bug #41201.

You should check with the person providing the builds you are evaluating. I suspect that the builds you are testing are still being built from the 3.8.0 release and do not include updates from the stable branch, but that is only a guess. The maintainer of the build can tell you how it was built. If that is correct, then you'll see the fixes in the upcoming 3.8.1 release.

indeed a few translation updates were lost,
which I'll report in more detail later,
but I think this is a separate issue.
for example, translation string "Passo adentro"
is present in the hg stable pt_BR.ts,
but it's not showing up in recent builds.
so I maintain this is a build issue,
likely related to the qm/ts regeneration.

This was my mistake, sorry. My changeset
has overwritten at least one of Felipe's changes. I found that

Mais opções...

in the find dialog was overwritten with


Which of Felipe's changes are also missing?

This might be more of a problem with the build system on that particular computer than a general Octave problem.  If I use touch to update the timestamp on a .ts file then the .qm file is re-built correctly.  See the results of 'make; touch; make' sequence.

an updated pt_BR.ts was pushed on Jan 9th: <http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/8193ef6d07fc>

and it didn't show up in two subsequent builds:
<http://octave.osuv.de/3.8/windows/octave-3.8.0-2-installer.exe> (Jan 11)
<http://octave.osuv.de/3.8/windows/octave-3.8.0-3-installer.exe> (Jan 21)

maybe it needs a Makefile dependency for the .qm files on the .ts files?

here is a potential solution:
