Not on a daily basis. If you make things available for translation too 
quickly, there's a lot of toing in froing. Say you accidentally commit a 
bit of code which requires 20 new strings to be translated. Some teams 
will deal with that quickly and if you have to back it out 2 days later, 
they will have worked for nothing.

So experimental stuff should not come up for translation straight away. 
The thing is, making changed/new strings available fast is not key 
really. Between releases, there's not much usually.
