Any chance you could move the translation files to the gettext PO format,
possibly with a script to convert from/to the current format? I’m really
getting sick and tired of literally wasting hours manually editing the file
in the current format, for doing something I could have done in a few
minutes with the PO format (and in addition avoiding making the file invalid,
which is extremely easy to with a single wrong keypress now).

I’m working on very many translation projects, but I feel that updating the
translations for Rockbox takes too much time and feels like too much of a
chore, even with the relatively few string changes, to make it worth my
while.
