I've tried translating a few and it works quite fine. Fetching translations
also seems to work fine. I cannot test the review process right now (as I'm
owner of the translations I've done)

Could you please enable this for 'es'?

I wouldn't mind having my team (spanish) use this to expand the work on the
translation descriptions. It would be great, however, if the interface would
provide a list of untranslated descriptions (maybe sorted by priority) and
make it possible to retrieve them from the UI.

Let's try it first and see how it works, but it looks very promising.
