Please consider that a strong suggestion then. After all, there can be
no surprise at the lack of translations if nobody thought of telling
the translators.

The usual way is to alert the translators when a release is about to
be made, but leaving them some time to actually do the work -- maybe a
week or two. It could be a good idea to notify them each time a new
release branch is forked off as well, since a lot of strings may have
changed from the previous release and that will give a little more
time for preparation.
