Hi Pier,

lconvert is a new qt4 tool that can now convert from po to ts and quite
a few other formats including qm. The problem is that there is no
context. You would have to use lconvert to create a ts file, then run
lupdate again to create a context friendly ts file that should,
hopefully, bring in translations from the already translated strings
that match.
