But is that a good thing?  There's a chance that a Fedora translator is
running Fedora on their own computer, which gives them the ability to
run the applications they are translating, and see the strings in
context.  On the "any pc around you" this is most likely not possible.

Well, no.  It is easy enough already.  I could want better tools, but a
web-based UI is not my idea of better tools.  In fact, I doubt a
web-based translation tool can ever be as quick to use as one's favorite
text editor.
