The ideal coordination would be
1. Notify every translators and receiving translation before inital upload
(so that we don't have a window of non-translated package in sid)
A non-ideal coordination would be :
2. Accepting translations after uploading package with untranslated
text and uploading a package.
The worst case; which consists about 10% of Debian:
3. Not accepting translations until some major change is applied to
package; by which time the translation is already outdated.
choice 1 gives 100% translation rate, 2 gives a lower translation
rate with untranslated text in unstable. 3 gives a very much lower
translation rate with untranslated text found in stable distribution.
