There is not one "consistent" way but several ways. It depends on where 
in the UI the string occurs, a menu, a symbol bar, a dialog, an error 
message. I have written some examples, from where you can get some ideas 
for searching.

Yes it is. For tabpages you find all of its strings too, if you open the 
file for example in ViewVC or Opengrok (see Pootle user guide). Looking 
at other strings from the same dialog tabpage is indeed helpful to find 
the dialog.

The Pootle User Guide has a lot of information in the meantime. I think 
it is already worth a look, although it is still work in progress. Help 
is welcomed ;)

Kind regards
