This is easy and I can answer it too: Sun/Oracle used to prepare the 
data from the sources and uploaded them to a Pootle server; then 
translation teams would operate on the PO files (online or offline) 
before an announced "translation deadline"; at that point, control was 
back in the hands of Sun/Oracle: they used data from the PO files to 
repopulate the SDF files used in the source. But this probably adds 
nothing to what you already know: in other words, the code<->Pootle 
conversions have always been "black boxes" for translation teams.
