I see currently two advantages:
- Po files and statistics are updated automagically on code change in 
repository - this is why the stats linked by Evangelos on the Transifex 
page are not the same as the ones on the xfce page. For example:

"POT-Creation-Date: 2009-04-08 13:54+0200\n"
"PO-Revision-Date: 2009-06-09 03:10+0200\n"

"POT-Creation-Date: 2009-06-21 22:31+0000\n"
"PO-Revision-Date: 2009-06-09 03:10+0200\n"

 One of these contains two fuzzy strings, while the other one makes me 
think everything is fine. Which is which?

- Possibility of committing via a web interface. No more waiting for svn 
up commands to complete. No more unnecessary bandwidth-wasting. This can 
be very important to translators with narrow band access only - see the 
gnome-i18n@ archives since the git migration for evidence :).

- There is also some support for team workflow, so that one translator 
can lock the file he is working on, preventing others to make duplicate 

Certainly, adopting Transifex would mean some extra work for the web 
site maintainers, but I think from the translator's point of view, it 
would worth it.
