well, I've done the steps, I have the source-code on my HD. I see the  
TeXworks_de.ts file. I could edit it with my favorite TextEditor (as  
it is a rather-clean XML).

But this is not the good point, I guess. There seem to be some (QT)- 
Tools out there which provide an interface to do these translation  
tasks. "QT Linguist" or anything similar.

Just give me a hint how to make it work (the QT-linguist-thingy). The  
QT-website is not very coherent and/or helpful.

If this doesn't work, I can always do my comments/corrections just  
into the xml file (TeXworks_de-ts), anytime, no prob.

But I would prefer the proper way

let me know
