Think bigger :)  Think of an existing open source web app that does this
kind of thing already ... for thousands of software packages!

Isn't this (providing a web interface for translators of strings in open
source software) exactly what the Launchpad.net Rosetta framework does,
on a rather larger scale?

Would it really be appropriate for SWORD/CrossWire to invest limited
resources re-inventing tools of this nature, rather than using what is
already available?

Further info about Rosetta and contributing translated strings using it
is available at:
