We still prefer to fix the English issues in the master data instead of
doing so in the translations (which would be hiding the mistake and
duplication of terms).

GitHub has a good web interface that allows you to submit changes
without any knowledge of git. I know it still requires to know where it
should be changed but it should be easier than when the code was on
Or, just a tough, if still too technical, English speakers could create
a github issue with "[english]" in title so more technical users could
easily spot them and create PR.
