Shouldn't text remain consistent (e.g. intead of "Post a new topic" just "NEWTOPIC")?

I suggest not to. Ideally it should be "New Topic" or "Post Reply" with only 2 words per button and capitalized first letter in each word

That's fine, I just didn't like the whole sentence "Post a new topic", that seemed too long.

The drop shadow on the text makes it look a little blurry I think.

well one of the pros of this PR is, that you just need to edit the language and not any images ;)

I think it looks better with that veranda font. Looks more simple and clear than the "fancy" font used in the images with bold on reply etc.
