Disappearing translations and maintaining consistency over branches

Hi Edward,

I suggest using and setting up properly Lokalize for that.
In Lokalize I have two projects:
1) kf5-stable
2) kf5-trunk

File kf5-stable.lokalize contains:

File kf5-trunk.lokalize contains:

Notice that stable project points to the trunk branch, and trunk project
points to the stable branch.

That way if I translate something in stable then it goes into trunk and
in reverse. It happens automatically. Hope it will help you.
