Bug Description

It would be nice if translators could add a comment to the po file, such as:

"Conventions used in this translation: `foo' is translated to `bar'"

etc.

(See also bug 25 for commenting on individual translations.)

It could be a [list of tuples] internaly, with on a gui point of view, a search field on the left that give the word associate, and another box with two fields : english - translation_language (french for my case).
The problem i see is, what if we change ? It may be interesting to have a "search item which contains []", to correct it more easily.

But a wiki-like page with comments allowed, like in wikipedia could be usefull too

Although this bug is 10+ years old I still couldn't find a possibility to comment on translations. It would be nice to have this possibility sooner or later…
