Hi, I don't think that many of our translators are using GTranslator, so 
I can't give you a proposed list of improvements over what GTranslator 
already offers.

it seems you have some interesting ideas. I would maybe add the 
possibility for heuristic checks like Pootle has (i.e., checking that 
XML snippets are well-formed, so that there is a matching closing tag 
for open tags; or checking that a string containing the number "12345" 
contains it even when translated; or checking that a 2-words string is 
not translated with a 100-words string).

When you have something to look at, feel free to post here again, and 
maybe some of our translators will want to give your tool a try.
