1. Is there a quicker/safer way to translate the language files without going directly into the es.xml file? I can translate the words no problem, but I see a risk when doing it directly in the xml file since it is easy to mess up some of the code/strings around the words. I was thinking maybe a code editor or some type of script that can filter out just the words that need to be translated, something like what we see in the Polyglot.
2. For packaging the new translated language module, can I just zip it on my local computer using winzip and then upload it to a manually created /package/ folder in my website root?
