I'm almost offended by you calling my efforts here silly, but I'll ignore it, maybe you're right.
Using existing systems would surely be the best way, it we get the systems to suit us.
Transifex looks quite good:
Launchpad only supports gnu gettext files? It looks good too, though.
I think we could easily build a "bridge" between xbmc string.xml files and gettext files so we can use these systems.
I have no idea if those systems provide the "translation memory", which surely is critical to the translation process.
Then there's the matter of plugins, where the changes need to be pushed to where ever the addon developers fo their development.
Any way it goes, I want to see the xbmc translation situation improve, a lot, and I'm willing to work on it. Be it silly or not.
