Could the following be of some help to you?

svn co svn+ssh://svn.debian.org/svn/d-i/people/joeyh/trans/po

This is indeed a special SVN repository which acts as a king of relay
to the general repository.

However, some packages are missing here (mostlly those which were
added in d-i since the day Joey made this special "l10n" repository).

This allows checking out all PO files, on a more flat basis.

There are currently lots of people thinking about a more appropriate
way to handle l10n in Debian packages.....most ideas turn around a
general PO files repository, but the tricky part is how to move files
from the repository to individual packages...as well as update the
repository with maintainer's changes when packages are changed.

This will probably end up some day in a kind of central repository for
package's l10n, for sure..:-)
