I can manage to contact folks over at Transifex [@Jan: no intention to
take over or interfere to your work. I am just putting some glue which
might or might not be wanted from the community]. Or... why not cc-them
directly this post? Well, just asking never hurts (at least I believe
so :-p).

@Dimitris Glezos:

can http://open-tran.eu/ be linked to transifex.net?

Best regards, Nikos
