Close -- 'make test-es-ES', /in theory/ anyway. Unfortunately, that 
doesn't actually work because Publican doesn't understand the big, 
merged PO files that translators are working with. Translators would 
need to split the single, big PO files to refresh Publican's many little 
PO files and /then/ run the test.

A few months back, I documented the procedure in a post here to f-t-l: 
see [1] and a slight correction [2]. It's certainly achievable, but only 
for the brave :)
