Would Herms be done translating everything by the year 2030?

I don't know about that. If there is more Dragon Ball, then Herms's job will never be done.

A world without Dragon Ball is just meh.

I think it would be good if Herms clarified the Kaioshin Realm is actually a fifth of Universe 7's size. The Daizenshuu states it is a tenth of the combined scope of the Living World and the Afterlife, which would make it a fifth of the size of the material universe.

Perhaps it'd be appropriate to update the pronoun guide with Super. I noticed Freeza has started using "Watashi" as his main pronoun and wonder if there are any other changes.

Oh man if they release something that explains Freeza is an asexual gender nuetral species, I can't imagine the west handling that well.

Does he ever cover what the 'z' in DBZ means?

This is already covered in our "Production Guide" on the website (pasting below):

-------------------------

The "Z" Title
Probably Toriyama’s most notable contribution to the Dragon Ball Z anime series is that he coined the title "Dragon Ball Z" itself. In pages 92 and 93 of the TV anime guide Son Goku Densetsu, Toriyama explains the origin of the name:
Son Goku Densetsu wrote:— I heard a rumor that you added the "Z" to the title because of an energy supplement that had "Z" in its name.

Toriyama: Well, that's wrong (laughs). "Z" is the last letter in the alphabet, right? So, at the time I already really wanted to end the series, and so I made the title "Z" to say "Hey, this is the end!" I don't remember saying a single thing about any energy supplement. You really can't go by rumors (laughs).

Nakatsuru: Did you imagine anything else besides "Z"?

Toriyama: No, I don't think so. Personally I thought that the title was fine the way it was, but the people on the anime staff said they wanted an image change, so I figured "well, this should be OK".
It is interesting to note that Daizenshuu 10 also mentions that, prior to Toriyama coming up with the title "Dragon Ball Z", the anime staff had been considering such names as "New Dragon Ball", "Dragon Ball 2", "Dragon Ball 90", "Dragon Ball: Wonder Boy", and "Dragon Ball: Gohan's Big Adventure".

That is cool, I like toriyama just does things without all this thought that people put in it themselves.

I'm from the west and I always assumed that to be the case.
