[MeeGo-il10n] Emulated UI for translations?

I have been translating some of the new Handset applications on
meego.transifex.net site to Finnish language. I have faced some
problems with some strings because I can't see how the translation
will look like on the real device. Some of my translations are quite a
bit longer than original string is and it's possible that some of the
text is cut on real UI. Because of this I think that it's important
to see how these translations look like on real interface and without
it translation quality will be bad.
Therefore I would like to know if there is any plans to have some sort
of emulation where translator could see emulated UI (handset, tablet,
etc.) with his translations easily?
This issue was talked at talk.maemo.org  some time before MeeGo and
there had some hopes to have this kind of possibility for Maemo
Harmattan. Is this still a plan for Nokia to have for Maemo Harmattan
and if it is, can it be extended to cover MeeGo also?
