Of course this Word Document could then easily be used for other languages as well. However, if possible, I would prefer having someone doing it directly in the source files with Git. But if that's too complicated, I'm happily going to do it the other way as well.

Unfortunately Walking Paper isn't working with Translatewiki or Launchpad or .po files, so they won't help here. I guess a spreadsheet is the only option then.
To make a good localization, I guess a spreadsheet is not enough though. Ideally people would also have access to WP and see in which context something is used. However I guess internet connections aren't always available and a translation is better than no translation. Would it make sense to add screenshots to the "translation package"?
