I'm responsible for coordinating the Catalan translation of mailman. I've been doing the job my self for some months but now I have a few people interested in helping me.
Now the question is: how can I divide the .po files to divide the job? And more over: I switched to Mac and one of my helpers is working on Mac also but cannot find a po editor. Do you have any help for this?
Thanks to all.

There is only one mailman.po file for each language. Theoretically you can split it into several files, send to other people, and when they send it back - join together for one file. But this is not good idea.
Better send whole mailman.po file to every person and just say them "you are translating from msgid XXX to msgid YYY". When they finish you will need only to merge different versions of the same file. This can be made manually, or using standart tools like diff and patch.
The best solution is to use some version control system (CVS is still the most popular one). If you don't have your own CVS server, you can register new project of sf.net or savannah.gnu.org - they provide CVS access.
