I really don't see a revision of all existing strings as a requirement to start reviewing newly 
added ones.

At some point in time that review has to be done.  To minimize the
overall workload, it is easier, and simpler, to do it before reviewing
newly added strings, than afterwards. (For starters, doing it afterwards
means having to review those newly added strings at least twice, and
maybe thrice.)

Especially if you are a native English speaker and have a style guide
at hand.

Just as the English language has never met it word that it has not
adopted as it's own, so it has never met a grammatical construct that it
has not adapted and mutilated. One direct consequence of both those
facets of acquisition, is that it is incredibly difficult to write a
sentence in English that is grammatically incoherent, but extremely easy
to write a sentence that grammatically means the opposite of what was
intended.

IOW, that certain string might be "clear, concise and
grammatically, syntactically and typographically correct", but mean
something other than intended, because the vocabulary is usually used to
mean something else elsewhere.

BTW, when you say "style guide", which specific one do you mean?
