http://l10n.xwiki.org is where we actually store reference
translations and where translator can contribute right now. The idea
would be to translate directly in the wiki and then (automatically or
not) send the translations from your XWiki instance to l10n.xwiki.org
(if you have an account). You could see this as a commit/push.
