Exact. I uploaded the PO template generated from your en-US.sdf to Pootle
(in my machine) and matches with your. It says that have 89977 words, so we
have 72696 strings (with 89977 words).

This is a mistake that happen between professional and volunteers
translators. The first charges by word, and the second don't charge. :-P
Now, serious, for volunteers, generally we see how many strings need to
translate, where can be since one symbol or a phrase of 10 lines.

Well, now i see that is all ok.
