Do you think it might be a good idea to make a rule that each of these
macros should have a defined prefix like

#define STR_HELLO_WORLD_ID "hello world"
#define STR_BYE_BYTE_WORLD_ID "bye bye world"

That might make it easier to write template generators for the
language-meta-files from the source code.

In characters or in pixel? I see the necessity but with propfonts that
will be a difficult task. A simple editable text file will be not an
option any more. It might be necessary to write an
translation-editor-application that can calculate the real string widths
as they would appear on the Jukebox. That's a bit of overkill
considering that this translation-editor will be used only every now and
than when a new string/language is added to rockbox.
