Hi Hiro,

Just to update the thread, the JSON is working in Transifex. However,
Transifex does not like having the translations combined with the
English source in one file.

Is it possible to split the English source from the translations within
Lektor? If not, doing the split / combine outside of Lektor shouldn't
cause any issue either.

Due to the way Transifex works, its easiest if each language could have
its own file, as this is how it will come out of Transifex. If this is
not possible, we can combine them before they are added to Lektor.
