Does the document now have 103 lines of English because the msgids have changed? If so we should revert. No doubt the gettext approach made things easier for Cristian when he was able to attend to it regularly but without that regular attendance it's subject to decay. In the case of a document I think it's better for it to be obsolete and coherent than to be partly in English and perhaps nonsensical as the context of the strings changes.
