I personally make it easy for myself when translating: Only working on
one branch at a time. IMHO you should focus solely on S2_1 for the time
being as the next stable release will be from this branch.

At this point you don't have to merge changes from S2_0: I did that for
es.po a while ago and no work has been done on our Spanish translation
since then.

Oh, and when editing po's I personally just use gedit. ;)

Good luck!
