Thanks, I will check it during weekend.

Yes there definitely is. I already started discussion on using on-line
translating system some time ago and there was quite positive feedback
from translators, so the only question that remains is how to integrate
this tool with our current work style. We currently allow only official
translators to update language files to ensure some quality - we do not
know all languages and it's easy for someone anonymous to write
something naughty into some message and we won't notice that
translation of Welcome string to Chinese says for example fuck you all.

So to integrate with our current practice, I would suggest following:

- allow of upload of whole file (in case translator wants to put his
version into system)
- ability to merge with cvs, I guess this could be done by cvs + some
shell scripting executed daily from cron
- send emails to translators with changes before release so that they
can review changes and possibly upload them to translation tracker
