The etoys.mo has been compiled from an actual etoys.po from Pootle (3660 
strings all without "fuzzy"). The resulting etoys.mo has been copied 
into the german lang- directory in my local  etoy-directory.
I can see the translation strings from pootle in an running etoy-image.
The squeak/etoy language-editor for says: "4526 phrases 2371 translated 
2155 untranslated". The translation strings from pootle doesn't show up 
in the internal language-editor. The translation strings from the 
internal language-editor doesn't show up on pootle.
What's the best way to merge these translations into one single german 
How to resolve conflicts between these "versions" and bring them back up 
to pootle?
