Great :).

You're absolutely right. Editing the file in a text editor works, but is
not recommended. The tool that is recommended is Qt Linguist.
I don't know if you have Qt Linguist already. You could try typing
"linguist" in a terminal.
If you don't have Linguist, I think it should be included in the Qt
Framework package. As I wrote before, just go to
http://qt.nokia.com/downloads, click "Chose LGPL/Free" and then
"Download Qt libraries 4.5 for Mac" on the right hand side. It's a dmg
file, but since I'm not a Mac user I can't tell you how to install/use
it (but from what I read on Wikipedia, it should somehow integrate into
the Finder).

Once you have linguist installed, run it. Then simply open
TeXworks_de.ts and start happy translating ;).
