Ok, ok, I know complications of this :)

Well, that's not helping. I am fully aware how it all works (doing
damn translations for ~ 9 years). I want get Firefox 3.x translation
into Intrepid. Deadline is tomorrow, so no way it will get trough
Firefox official translation system and then uploaded into Launchpad.

So, is there good way of doing this except exporting po, "translating"
it and trying to import it again into Launchpad?
