Nice! Some questions.
- Why you're not keeping English source and translations in the same repository? I don't know if fetching from one repo and committing to another is supported by our scripts (if Siebrand suggested that, ignore me).
- Can you use UTF-8 please?
- Several of those properties files are invalid. For instance  has a
\ufeffas first character.
The DSpace community is dropping the OLD UI technologies based on JSPUI and XMLUI (Apache Cocoon) and is converging on a single, Angular UI.
In the context of this migration, we're in the process of transferring the language keys and translations to the .po and .pot format.
Once this is in place, could we pick up this thread again on integrating with translatewiki?
Thank you !!!
