Hey everyone,

+1 for working on Transifex as I also already get used to it while I'm
working on InaSAFE documentation ;)
By using Transifex, I'm sure more people will contribute to translate as
it's very easy to use... The more, the merrier ;)

But, we should keep the number of reviewers limited.

Cheers
-Emir
