I don't think there's any real problem with you using translations from 
DesireData, if only you honour the names of the translators.

It depends on your ambitions though. If you decide to limit yourself to 
words that are the same in any software, then it doesn't matter, but if 
you want translation for Pd-specific things, then it would make sense to 
make use of DesireData's translations. There's a difference between 
translating 50 words and translating 500 phrases. What I made the 
translators do, is to translate 500 phrases.
