Yes you can. There is already quite much translator comments in the
Scheme files, e.g.


(define variation-names
        ; Translators: this string is the name of a variant of this game. If there is an established standard name for this game or game variant in your locale, use that; otherwise you can translate this string freely or literally, at your option.

This comment "; Translators: ..." shows up in the po files for the
translators by the current tool chain.
