It seems it does not destroy translations.
I started translations with an es.po file a week ago, I commited
translations some hours ago, against the new es.po file with the new
strings and it seems it does not destroy my work.
t.fp.o [1] shows for Spanish 341/476/207 (1024 strings) while my
poEdit shows 353/477/200 (1030 strings). Of course, I have to download
the new .po file to continue working.
