[Foundation-l] Translation Memory wikiprojects

With all of the translations of Wikipedia content happening through
Google's Translation Toolkit, we are building up a nice set of
{strings and their translations} in many languages.  The data that
comes from translatin Wikimedia content is all theoretically available
under our free license... but I don't believe it is available yet in
practice.  This sort of "translation memory" is useful to any
translator working on their own projects, and should be made available
for them to use.  It would also be good to have a global project where
translators can upload their personal TM data.

Siebrand / Nike / Sabine / Gerard and others who work with
translatewiki and OmegaT: what are the current sources OmegaT uses for
TM information?  Is there currently a freely licensed TM database?  If
so, we should make sure they are able to access the new translation
links we are generating.  If not, we should consider starting one.
