i thought about this:

Make a mailsystem like the bug trackimg system. You can subscribe to a
language (or a language-section combination) and get per Mail one (or
more) random untranslated descriptions. If you have send one (or more)
translated descrition back to the system, you get new untranslated
descrition ... 

The system know the translator (the From-line in the Mail) and can
send the translated description again to the translator, if the
english description has changed. 

We can add this with a web interface. But I (personally) don't like
web interfaces. But this is not your problem.

thanks for your information.

I know this. This will work. 

With we little pacht, APT download a Packages-LANG file instead a
Package file.
