I am very glad that you are so enthusiastic about this and hope the 
project will get somewhere.
1-I am going to merge the two po files and send it to you soon.
I suggest that you use this one, because finally I'll have to do the 
proofread the translations and also merge it with previous proved works.
2- I also highly suggest that you use the dictionary, actually it's not 
gnome dictionary but the gnome folks are using it same as guys in kde 
and ubuntu translation teams. It is of high quality and it was produced 
in "National Linux project" according the "culture and language academy" 
suggestions. And it's almost accepted by the translators. You don't have 
stick to it, sometimes when you feel the need you can use your own 
equivalent but most of it's words are often the best choice.
You won't have to memorize it, you can just use it as a dictionary and 
refer to it when you feel the need.
But believe me, it is your best friend in doing the job and saves you a 
lot of time
3- I looked over your work, it's fascinating and you are doing good, 
just be aware of the zwnj as you type, you should use it in appropriate 
places instead of space.
