This is a great feature.  After using it for a while I have one
suggestion (if it's not too late).  In translator mode, the 'needs
review' checkbutton will be checked if you *write* a suggestion, but
not if you copy the English message or an existing suggestion and edit
it.  In my opinion it would be better to always check the 'needs
review' button in translator mode - it's a more consistent behaviour
(so you have to think less), and you are 100% sure that you cannot
overwrite or delete something by accident.  Are there others who have
an opinion on this?

Best regards
