I'm actually not sure if somebody already has an idea how to approach 
this. I guess that we will end up with both resource files and po files 
in our tree and that we indeed will have patches to po files as well.

The difference however could be that we could have a translation tool in 
place (for example Pootle if that's viable) that automatically generates 
the patches and sends them to wine-patches. One can even think of some 
'approval layer' in between to verify if the translations actually 
messes up the layout.

Why don't we add this as a nice topic for the next WineConf?
