[Xfce-i18n] Getting started with translations (Dutch)

For bringing up and maintaining the Dutch translation for almost a 
decade, Pjotr certainly deserves credits. And I can also understand that 
you would not let a complete stranger loose on those translations. But 
the welcome could indeed have been a bit more friendly and/or explanatory.

I have some previous experience with translations on Crowdin and there 
translations changes do not overwrite previous ones, so nothing gets 
lost. Translations can be voted up or down and be approved and they just 
let anyone in, seems to work. I just assumed Transifex would be similar. 
If Transifex does not have such mechanisms and just replaces the old 
translation with the new one, I can understand the hesitation to allow 
access. This is also addressed at the bottom of this page:


I am willing to provide a sample for the mentioned file by email if that 
would help. But I see this as just an 'entry test' and not something 
that should be continued for future changes, reasons already given by 
Elishai. So if you will not grant access after some 'approval', please 
say so now, so I can spare me the effort of providing you with a sample.
