[Project_owners] Maybe a very silly question

is probably what you're thinking about. It's is a project that comes 
close to what you describe.

It's been quiet on mozdev.org for a while but it's used for our Welsh 
localisation for Mozilla/Firefox and Thunderbird. You need to host your 
own MySQL however and website. I use it as a localhost installation. 
Also the functionalities to eases offline translation by converting all 
dtd and properties files in a given directory to one 'po' file is one we 
use a lot of as well. (well it isn't strictly speaking according to the 
po file standard but it works with poEdit)

You're welcome to have a copy of the latest Java I have - it's more 
recent that the CVS with probably some 'hacks' for Firefox and po file
