First at all. I have backups from the data. But yes, we have to merge 
changes. The problem is, that we have not realy a clean base. We have 3 
different sources:

- first the SDF in the Source
- The backup from the old pootle Server
- The Source it self (but the source has no translation, only the en-US 

The SDF Files works in the build, so they are tecnical clean. But they 
are probabily not up to date with the localization. The SDF was created 
before Hamburg stopt working. So samewhat in the March 2011. The Pootle 
server works much longer, so there are probabily translation in the old 
Pootle backup wich are not in the SDF. But both include not the new AOO 

The Pootle server has a actual Backup from the translation, but this 
backup commes from a crushed HD. So we are not sure if this files are 
clean. Not clean po's are a big risk.

The data from the source content the additional AOO strings but no 

What I try to do is the following:
debug the existing po from the old Pootle server. Broken language we 
can't use, the changes will be loost. If you have a actual local copy of 
the po files from the old Pootle server you can send me the directory in 
a Zip archive.

Dreate new po files based on the AOO Source

update pootle
