You shouldn't copy a po file for some language to another one, as
you may miss translations. gettext has a tool to create an initial
po file (IIRC, msgmerge can be used for that, from a po model file).
Then I use Emacs to edit the po files, as it has a nice mode for
that (like that, it can be seen as a po editor :).

To test your translations, no need to recompile Subversion. Just
regenerate the mo files (Subversion should provide a script or a
makefile rule for that, like other projects[*]) and reinstall it.
I haven't tested with Subversion, though.

[*] I do the French translations for Mutt and ROX. Mutt has makefile
rules (update-po and update-gmo) and ROX has update-po and make-mo
scripts. This is for Unix. I don't know what can be used on Windows
if this is your case.
