Hey, this was the subject, I had to get it short. My original post
contained the following paragraph:
So I would like to ask developers not to edit l10n files (templates,
PO files, etc) themselves; if you believe that something goes wrong,
notify the translator or his translation team (or any other trusted
person). If you disagree, think twice before applying your changes,
you are certainly wrong.
According to replies, this opinion is not shared by all developers.
