I believe it works and is reasonable way.
Changes will be small and 3 days are enough.

I did the same a few times, but I18N did not organized at that time.
During Havana cycle, I18N team started to work as a community and the
number of languages increases,
so I think it is time to have a consensus and make translation update
a part of the release process.
