Haven't you read the whole README? You have finished the web site
translation, this is very cool.  Recently, the English pages have
changed a lot, so you should update the Spanish translation as explained
in the README. That's not urgent, but it is important. I estimate it is
good to run "make LANG=es check-translation" once or twice a week: if
you don't have time to immediately update the translation, it at least
shows you waht should be updated.

Yes. So, I suppose you're working on master branch, which is used to
release the development series.

Is "lilypond --help" output in Spanish?

Which editor do you use for the .po? Maybe Spanish messages don't appear
because you have to remove unwanted fuzzy marks (KBabel should do this
automatically when you edit entries), or you may need to compile
LilyPond. Anyway, it should work in the next released Mac OS X, Linux
and FreeBSD GUB binaries.

.po files have to be in UTF-8. AFAICT LilyPond always uses UTF-8.

I've applied your patches. I'm puzzled why you added an identical
es_MX.po file, though; do you plan to make differences between them?
