LGTM, just two remarks:

I don't know how the Transifex/Zanata/whatsoever setup is progressing and 
what's feasible but I wonder if the translators can finally have some 
highlighting of the available terminologies in the to be translated strings. I 
believe that would really help to avoid looking up these manually and 
consequently to improve consistency and quality, in particular if somebody new 
starts. It however requires singular _and_ plural. I recommend to rethink this 
and the overhead seem low.

In case you've discussed this because of my comment, apparently I was talking 
about freezing the term translations to make sure we keep consistency and I 
understand it should be with the local teams.
