Daniel, that's a very useful and good idea!

For www.bibletime.info we have a online translation tool in place which offers 
the possibility to translate and edit the messages of the chosen language 
The data is stored in a aSQL database.

In my opinion the online translation tool is very useful for people who don't 
have programming skills.

Thank you for spending your time about this topic!
