I totally agree with Jan. Working offline is the supported way; it is 
more difficult, but we are here to help and all the recently released 
translations have been done this way.

So, if you prefer to download files, your steps are:
1) Install POEdit (from or otherwise, depending 
on your operating system). If on Windows, install too.
2) Download the Tamil files from here: and 
expand the archive.
3) Open each file with POEdit, translate and save.
4) When you are done, write again and we will take care of integrating 
your translations.
