This could even be extended to other CDD, of course.

Approximately how many strings, and in which files would they be merged?

I don't think we are likely to worry about a few added strings when translating, but any large number of strings might be better off in a separate file, or in more than one separate file, to avoid any single file becoming intimidatingly large.

It would certainly help to integrate these strings into D-I, so we can assure their consistency in vocabulary and quality with the main translation.
