I decided to always work on branch and once 1.1 is out of the door to
catch up on trunk afterwards. I found it quite annoying to fix/merge
tiny spelling corrections twice.

That's what I do as well.

I do that only on branch, so I'm working the other way round.

I'll do that for trunk once 1.1 is through the door. I'm using poEdit to
translate and I always refresh my translation memory after fixing
translations on branch. This way I hope to get a lot of good matches
when catching up on trunk.
