I find your general ideas on the IDE integration of POChecker in full 
agreement with my view, therefore I'm ready to jump on the bandwagon.
I had never used before the IDE editor for translations, but, from a 
quick test I saw that the proper highlighter is already there, and it 
already does its job. Maybe it can be improved with a few minor 
additions such as "Find next fuzzy" or "Find next untranslated", which 
are rather trivial, or with the escaping of quotes, also not so hard to 
Another possible way would be a small po-editing package, on the same 
line of the HTML editor, providing a number of useful options, and 
taking advantage of a number of functions of POChecker.

But I'd like to face one thing at a time.

1) I've just posted a last minor update to editortoolbar package, which, 
if survives user test, should be more or less in a "production" state.
See http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=26692
Will you or someone else take care of applying?

2) Now I'll face the thumbnail view of po files, as a first upgrade to 
POChecker. This way I'll familiarize with the component, which, up to 
now I've just blindly used.

3) In the meantime we may let the ideas settle down, and decide a 
roadmap to a better handling of translations: editing translations, 
checking them, etc.
