What precisely makes this a stub or unfinished? The fact that nobody removed that tag, or something else?

Is there a policy for how formal or informal a translation can be? A lot of the phrases here would sound ridiculous (and conspicuously foreign) if the direct translation to Filipino would be used. A waiter would, at best, look at you oddly if you ordered tsaang may yelo (iced tea) or, at worst, have you committed to a mental institute if you ordered katas ng kahel (orange juice).
