[Xfce-i18n] Opinions about translations.xfce.org

Transifex makes surely easier and faster the translations submission. 
But in the workflow I surely miss 2 functions:
1) a tool to search in the translated files: let's say that I find a 
wrong translation in the gui of xfce. Now I have to discover the package 
that actually contains the translation. It would instead be useful to 
have a search engine that looks in all the translated file within a 
language (let's say all "it.po" files in my case) to find the exact word 
I'm looking for and prompt me with the possibility to change that 
translation. Same function could be also useful to search the original 
untranslated terms in case that in the xfce's gui you find an 
untranslated term.
2) I appreciate the review feature but, if I'm not wrong, it send for 
review the entire "po" file. It would be great if only the changed 
translation could be sent for review cause most of the time the 
translation work consist of integrating only few new sentences in an 
existing translation.

Thanks, and if these features already exists please tell me!
