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
