Adding a web-based translation tool to our infrastructure will allow
teams to receive more translations, which they can edit later on,
potentially saving our core translators time and energy. An example of
packages being benefited can be specspo (massive) and release notes
(big and little time).

Such an action can happen if we find a way to integrate it to our
workflow (ie make it work in parallel to offline translation, which is
_easier_ for most of our translators) and some people to step up to
set it up and deploy it this way.
