I did a test comparing Lokalize and Weblate. Starting point in both
cases is an open file to translate, and I tried to see the first 10
messages of each file, a common task doing translations.

- Lokalize: I have pressed the PgDn key 10 times to jump to the next
message, and each jump is instantaneous

- Weblate: I have pressed the "Skip" button 10 times to jump to the next
message. From pressing the button to showing the next message there is
an average delay of 2.70 seconds. With a translation like Amarok (2639
messages) this is an overall delay of almost 2 hours. Tested with a
100Mbit/s optical fiber connection.

So, Weblate has some positive points but also some negative points. And
each team must decide if they use an online tool after some hard
thoughts, so Weblate or other online tools must be opt-in.
