Having CVS earlier, we were able to checkout just the individual PO

adapted to work with git stuff, no doubt! But bringing easiest approach
in this age of World Wide Web would be the best thing to do now.

It would help here.

For instance, Xfce uses a Transifex instance that allows translators
to automatically commit changes with statistics (example:
