You should always build in sid and check with lintian from sid. With
pbuilder that should be fairly simple. As far as I understand this does
not involve any VM, just an automatically generated chroot.

Remove it in your clean target and it will not get included in the
patch. Make the patch as clean as possible, that is easier for review.

If the translations work without it, there is no need.
