It's worth mentioning that translators and release engineers who still
prefer to interface with Transifex from the command-line and work with
Qt Linguist can use the client app. It should be as simple as:

 $ sudo pip install transifex-client
 $ tx init
 $ tx set --auto-remote https://www.transifex.net/projects/p/qt/
 $ tx pull -l ja (or --all)
 ... Translate offline ...
 $ tx push -l ja

Finally, it should be straightforward for a Qt hacker to write a Qt
Linguist plugin to open files straight from Transifex in Linguist. :)
