[Scribus] qm to ts/po ? was Simplified Chinese translation

I'm having difficulties to achieve this...
If someone that knows correctly the way the whole QTranslator thing should

What I understand is that .qm files contains messages translations, indexed
  - a unique hash used as lookup key
  - the couple context/sourceText, and a non mandatory comment (what we see
in .ts)

My current problems are :
  - i find a lot of (or maybe all, don't remember) messages translated in
the .qm but with no source  text available (QTranslatorMessage::sourceText()
is allways NULL)
  - i find duplicate translation with the same internal hash (sounds strange
?) (QTranslatorMessage::hash() is same). Maybe the key should be context +
hash ?
  - i don't find any context information (QTranslatorMessage::context() is
allways NULL)

It seems that the .qm file is kind of stripped. Is this possible ?

I can currently extract a list of "hash=translation" (also with the
comments, but I don't think that's very useful)  values from the chinese .qm
file, and do the same on another one, for example the french one, and then
do comparisons based on the hash value, but I can't find a way (easy,
without parsing XML files and so on) to make them match the english messages
(english .qm have no translations inside, no surprise there). Furthermore,
the duplicate hash value problem make me think there's something buggy...

I'll try another thing if I got time : use the empty .ts file to get all the
context/sourceText keys and use the QTranslator::findMessage method to
search their translation in the .qm...

If anybody have ideas on how to help...
