Not sure why you thought a loop would be needed. po4a will only extract 
strings for translations, but add back conditions when regenerating the 
sgml file from the po file. The only condition for this to go right is 
that the po file must be up-to-date with the English sgml file when 
generating the sgml file for the translation.

I'd say that no loop should be needed other than the loop that already 
existed to build all different arches for the website.
