Yes, I've seen the script, it uses the method also explained by Milo in 
another post: converting the mo file in our system in po files then making a 
greping in them.

But this isn't an easy way to make a search for two reasons:
- it is a difficult way to do this, for example for people of the translations 
teams that have made a huge contribution on a specific application because it 
is the one they knows better or are particularly interested, but they aren't 
very confident with shell commands
- it is a way impossible to follow if you have a report by someone using a 
previous relaese than what's installed in your computer, for example Dapper 
if you have Edgy
- if you would accord with your team to change the translation of a term, how 
you can do it in the evolving translations? You have to wait the next 
langpack release

For the workaround of downloading the pos. it's a way much time consuming 
because you have to wait the export process.

Finally, now you have to follow this two ways but I hope the new feature will 
be implemented soon.
