Yes, handling the translation of Wine's resource files would be really 
nice. It would let us leverage a lot of the po tools, especially the 
website based ones. This would make it much easier for users to 
contribute to the translations (right now it's pretty intimidating). I'm 
not sure how to handle the widget layout though.

But I have just stumbled on this pair of tools from the 
translate-toolkit packag (on Debian) that seem to be made just for this 

 * po2rc
   convert Gettext PO localization files to Windows Resource (.rc) files

 * rc2po
   convert .rc files to Gettext PO localization files

I don't have time to play with them but with luck someone else does. 
Getting it going with Wine would be really great.
