Usually yes, you can set automatic translation for 100% match.
For this and other procedures the translate-toolkit [1] is the way to go.

I thought the SDF were updated with AOO strings... Probably the SDF
comes from the last translation round which was set up for 3.4, so all
the teams that completed the translation in time probably have no
difference between SDF and pootle backup.

They are a risk for build if converted in SDF, but not for creating
translation memories ;-)

If I can be of any help (even if I have no commiter status), just let me know.
