Something like that would be nice. I had once written
a blueprint too [1], on an idea similar to this one.

Having some sort of dictionary/wikitionary or glossary
could help a lot of people starting with translation
(It would be useful to have also a sort of
per-language-help with conventions or anything else
used by a team, or links to that stuff).

This is something I would really like to see in
Launchpad...

Ciao!
