Don't worry: for a time we had a translations manager who took care
to lead people through the process. In the end folks just translated
and he did the rest with messages merging.

I'll try to contact him to hear if he plans to continue (hope so!).
If not, we'll find a new person and people like you can just translate.
Makes sense?

I agree but it is all a matter of time...

You are all right! It worked very well till recently, just the
translations manager
got busy with something else or summer time or whatever.
We'll work it out!

At OSGEo level, I once proposed
but wasn't yet successful. Since grass.osgeo.org is running in fact on a
telascience.org machine in San Diego where we have ssh access, we
could try to install some Web based software there.

If you want, I can send you the updated .po files so that you can
start translating
