Your timing was perfect. ;) Around the same time plus or minus a few
hours launchpad and rosetta were finally open sourced.
I'd also like to mention http://transifex.org which isn't tied to any
distro but can be deployed locally for a project. Afaiu it can be
integrated directly with upstream VCS.
fwiw I haven't looked at rosetta lately to see if it has improved
since its early bad reputation messing up upstream translation. I hope
I'm sure both are good for translating gettext .po files. Hopefully at
least one of them can deal nicely with the java style properties
translations of swordweb and Bible Desktop.
 It has been developed by Fedora folks, and I think to help with
GNOME but isn't tied to those.
 or however it is that those work that isn't gettext based.
