I made a few tests this morning.

poedit is crashing quite often for me. Maybe it's some bug triggered by
Italian encoding/characters(we use lots of accented letters, both acute
and grave depending on word meaning, actual grammatical rules are quite
strict too)). I have also tested gtranslator which looks more robust.

Apart from that a github workflow looks a little difficult, due to the
need to solve merge conflicts on the whole file, and the various tools
generating slightly different output.

I also know for sure some of the people I could get to help me don't use
git and would not be happy of it being mandatory for this work :)

I created an account on zanata (madpilot) and I have made a quick test
with the handbook file. It looks like its doing what is needed and can
be used even by non developers (which is not quite true for git/github).

Regarding this, maybe creating a single "FreeBSD handbook" project could
be useful. Are other translators interested in testing having one common
project on this platform?

Looks like it is also possible to have multiple revisions in parallel,
so each language team can work on its own target revision of the
upstream handbook.

Otherwise each language team can have it's own project if a more
granular approach is deemed better.
