I'd actually suggest another approach: write a simple two-way
transforming program which will do the following.  You provide it
with eg. reference.po (es.po) and your translation.po, and it outputs 
a new file with msgid's being msgstr's from es.po, and msgstr's being
from your translation.po.

This will allow all translators to use any PO tools they wish, and
you'd only have to convert this back (you may come across some
problems, like duplicated msgid's, but that's easily resolved with
either msguniq, or manually).

If you need, I may help write such a tool.
