Once we start using po files we can probably get rid of the 'transl' 
website as those stats will come from whatever tool we choose to deal 
with po files.

For the actual resources and their size/placements it would be nice to 
have a tool/website as well that could be used to show how the 
translated language actually looks in a menu/dialog/whatever with even 
the possibility to change things. Is that feasible?
