fwiw I just learned that Transifex allows projects to define a CLA which 
needs to be signed before joining a team.

As an example (you need to sign in):

As far as Reviewing is concerned, there is this feature in Transifex
itself. Each string can be reviewed from a privileged translator. Each
team can have any number of reviewers.

Hope this helps.
