OmegaT sounds like the main tool i was looking for.

I feel I still ought to warn you from my own experience.

Yes, OmegaT is, /de facto/, the only serious tool of description available open-sourcely (and not tied-in into some specific context).

However, OmegaT's automation may covertly skew/corrupt the result when working with object having complicated structure, as I learned to my own detriment when trying to apply OT to the LO PO files set.

I believe the root reason for that is segment-based translation for which OT was initially created. This is from memory so there are no more details.

I understand you'll translate (monolithic) LO documents so you'll likely be okay, but still, beware. :) Backup early etc. :)
