Spreadsheet sounds great. I use M$.
Perhaps you can group the items in categories, at least navigation and text.
So I know where the text will be put on the website. The translation could
be different depending on how a word is used. E.g. it is quite common on
German websites to use the same English word "Home" for the main page; but
you would not use "Home" in a different context. The exceptable length of a
translation depends on the context, too.
