as is clear from ctan itself, but i'm not sure whether my words in the
catalogue add anything.

which "latest"?  it surely won't be in the distribution on ctan, which
is frozen.  if you're looking at the tl 2010 pretest, remember that
you've made a significant change to the structure of the package, so
that re-building will at the least involve some tweaking, so it may be
that tl maintenance just hasn't got around to making the change.

or it may be that there's a mistake somewhere.  what's in the two
packages?  if translator is in an updated beamer distribution, you could
well have spotted a mistake.
