I have stumbled across an interesting project called Pootle. This is a web-based application that makes the management of PO-based translations very easy, allowing collaboration and versioning control.

The best part of all though is that Pootle is a home-grown, South African project, which just adds one more to the good software projects to come out of deepest darkest Africa. It was created by Translate.org.za.

Pootle 2.0 is out now, and is written using Django, and is looking really good.
