Translate the NewsBox extension if it is available at translatewiki.net

The NewsBox extension adds a news box to the left-hand sidebar, normally below the toolbox.

It works on all skins which call the SkinBuildSidebar hook — this includes all core skins (Cologne Blue, Modern, MonoBook and Vector) — as well as certain custom skins (Monaco, for example). NewsBox does not currently support the Nimbus skin.
