as the obsolete translations are theoretically serving as translation 
memory, you can fix them to have better examples for future use.
in any case it doesn't cause harm, and if you're doing a global search & 
replace anyway, it isn't even significant wasted effort.

however, your entire endeavour of doing individual fixes is somewhat 
pointless, as the whole translation is rather massively outdated at this 
point. the usual procedure would be updating the .ts files, completing 
the translation, and then discarding the obsolete strings (as most 
completely gone strings will never become useful again). then the 
question whether to update them becomes obsolete itself.
