Changing translations directly at the source code

I am the developer and project contact of Cita. The translation project began a couple weeks ago and it's been translated to multiple languages already. That's so cool! Before having the project on translatewiki, I took care of Spanish translations, which is my native language. Development of Cita continues and there usually are new messages or message changes. I would like to be able to change the Spanish translations directly at the source code when corresponding changes are made to the English strings. Otherwise, I have to wait until changes are pulled by translatewiki, then translate to Spanish online, and then wait again until translatewiki sends a pull request. Would this be possible? Something similar happens with message documentation (qqq). When a new message key is added, it would be easier to immediately add the corresponding message documentation, rather than waiting until changes are available at translatewiki (chances to forget are so high). Thank you very much for your support!

Hi Diegodlh, adding new/updated translations together with new/updated messages is OK.

But for changes of translations unrelated to patches I kindly ask you to do this in translatewiki. Otherwise the import process could get out of sync.

Thanks, Raymond! I'm planning to do this only occasionally and mostly for new messages, sure. Thanks!
