In this case, my intention is not to change the intention of the original strings.
The proposed changes are largely:

(1) Replace British spellings with standard US (e.g. behaviour->behavior)
(2) Correct "dodgy" grammar.
(3) Correct obvious spelling errors: "Liniar"->"Linear"

(2) above might result in translations that are not as accurate, so perhaps I could correct the .po files only for (1) and (3), those being very trivial, and leave (2) for the translators to properly fix up at next release?
