Correct me if I'm wrong, but if I edit the es.po file in my database, it won't be overwritten unless I run an update.

In that case, I guess I can back up the file and replace the one installed with the update.

It means that whenever there is an update of Spanish your changes will be overwritten.
In the other hand if your modification is not specific to your sole use but could be an improvment for all users, it could take part of the original translation.

You're right; but sometimes it could be better to save a text file with all the modifications you made and adapt the new .po file in case of important (translated) changes in the software

Thank you for the information. I have considered sending my localised po. However, although some of the modifications were corrections to the po file available, other were particularly addressed to the purpose of my survey.
