We will have to agree to disagree here. There are people in this discussion
who repeateadly said they did try even weblate, but prefer offline work.

About the collaboration, just to give an example: incorrect or unclear strings
(because the miss a context or are incorrect) should be discussed elsewhere
(in the mailing list or task tracker or bug tracker of the program, or here).
