Sorry I haven't been able to answer this before. :(
I'm also on OSX. OK, sample translator workflow (different procdures
for different projects!):
email updates, download from web, CVS or SVN.
Initiallize files with translation memory:
gettext (msgmerge) or TMX, via my translation editor LocFactoryEditor
, or use Pootle 
LocFactoryEditor, BBEdit (text editor) or Pootle, depending on
type and complexity of work
gettext (msgfmt), translate toolkit (pofilter) , spellchecking
(aspell, CocoaAspell  and a Debian script ) again via LFE and/
Send in files:
email, FTP, CVS or SVN
You might like to look at the Debian/Wordforge plans for a complete
translation infrastructure. . I believe this is the future of i18n.
You're welcome to ask me for more details. That's the skeleton.
from Clytie (vi-VN, Vietnamese free-software translation team / nhóm
Việt hóa phần mềm tự do)
 Not sure if this is documented in any one place, but check out
the Pootle roadmap (http://translate.sourceforge.net/wiki/wordforge/
functional_specificaions) and threads starting in late May on
translate-pootle) and debian-i18n (http://lists.debian.org/debian-
i18n/) about SoC, Wordforge and i18n infrastructure.
