8.4 Using Translation Compendia

The translator can use gettext tools to build a new compendium, to add entries to her compendium, and to initialize untranslated entries, or to update already translated entries, from translations kept in the compendium.

Creating Compendia:    Merging translations for later use
Using Compendia:    Using older translations if they fit
