Couple of options:

1) The translator keeps a copy of the english messages.properties
(either directly or through an svn version number) and performs a diff
of the orignal and the new file when they want to translate.

2) Just for added messages, one can write a simple Java program that
shows which messages exist in the english file but not in the translated
file. This is easy because the message files are properties files, thus
they can easily be loaded as properties objects and compared.
