There is only one po file: is.po. You can obtain it using
svn co svn://firstname.lastname@example.org/svn/d-i/trunk/packages/po
(sorry, don't know how to checkout only a single file and the web front
end http://svn.alioth.debian.org/ refers to the arch repository!!! :-))
I suggest you send the full is.po file to translators together with a
list of lines each translator should translate. Such as
translator 1: lines 1-1000
translator 2: lines 1010-2000
translator 3: lines 2010-3000
Ask for patches from each translator (diff -u is.po.orig is.po > my.patch)
and you can patch all these changes into your local file without conflicts
(because of the small gap of 10 lines).
After recieving all the patches you can translate lines 1001-1009,
