The idea is that the people that work in pootle, having to translate
dialogs that are sometimes strange to them, can look at how it was
before the conversion to ui.

A much better idea would be if someone actually converted the current
strings to the new format, so that we don't have to retranslate tons of
stuff just because of minor changes like a different accelerator character.

+ a million!!!

Before 4.2, I was pretty frustrated by having to retranslate previously
translated strings, because "~" had been changed into "_", thereby creating
some 6000 (IIRC) "untranslated" words. Sometimes TM helped, but with one or
two-word strings, there were often several alternatives, so I had to chase
the previous translation down in my 4.1 installation.

Btw, Andras & Cloph already wrote a script for automatically migrating help
translations, I suppose that could be reused (or used as reference, at
least) for UI as well. I can't find the thread on list-archive for some
reason, but look for "autofix for helpIDs in libo_help in progress (was:
Automatic translations and no suggestions in Pootle)" in your own email
(around 27 Nov 2013).

Best regards,
the Estonian team
