Thank you Marco. You are always helpful.
I just got an answer on the other list to. Suggesting starting all over again from a new clone. I think I'll do that before I try your suggestion. To me who know very little about the git commands, this is a safer method. But have to wait until later this night. Other things to do in the meantime.

How to get it to upload (git push) to the correct gimp repository?

Last time I uploaded my files (2016.01.07) I got the error message
"remote: error: refname 'GIMP_HELP_2_8_2' is ambiguous" (but the
"git push" succeeded) and I was told to run "git config --global
push.default matching" and/or
"git config --global push.default simple". I did this in that order.
No error messages.
Strange because:

1) looking on the commit 97ea600623b780fc9dba4abbaa45db44e626a10e you are
    currently on master

2) if you do a log and you see your changes you made that seems to me
    that you did not push that commit at all. You probably are in a
    detached HEAD state.

Trivial and primitive way to exit this situation.

1) save your translated files somewhere out of git repo

2) reset --hard your git to commit 97ea600623b780fc9dba4abbaa45db44e626a10e

3) git pull

4) replace files with your saved copies

5) commit & push
