l10n@2.0: New document format names

Elizabeth Matthis posted a small note for translators about new document formats and their proposed translations. Here are important excerpts:

The default file format for 2.0 will be called "Open Document Format for Office Applications" (see meeting minutes of The OASIS Open Office XML Format TC). The short-name form is OpenDocument. This short-name is used very often in the and is not to be translated!

Elizabeth suggests the document type itself to be localized (e.g. "OpenDocument spreadsheet" = "OpenDocument Tabellendokument" in German). All names of document format types are listed in the specification.

Please follow this suggestion while translating to your language. -----
