Did you read
Such a string freeze would really help translators.  As told by
Christian, a 1-week freeze would be fine (given that there are not that
many strings translated in PO files).  In practice, other large
projects have such a freeze: no changes by developers are permitted,
and when they are necessary, the l10n manager send a mail to their
-i18n or -l10n mailing list to warn translators and the deadline can
be shifted if these changes come very late.  Please consider adopting a
similar policy.
