If you want to create a new branch to retain commits you create, you may
  do so (now or later) by using -b with the checkout command again. Example:

     git checkout -b new_branch_name
maybe try following this advice?
   git checkout -b origin/translation


I prefer this:
git checkout -b translation origin/translation

so the local branch will be named translation instead of origin/translation

Federico, is there a bug here to be captured?

There's any open issue for the CG?  I can't find it..
This paragraph is marked as obsolete:

So if you want to open an issue, here's a quick and dirty description:

We currently recommend in 3.2.1 to use 'git clone' to download the repository. This command downloads all the remote branches and makes the checkout of the master branch.
3.2.4, Downloading individual branch, is obsolete and should be removed.

What we should keep are the instructions on how to start working on a new branch, different from master, that is:

git checkout -b branch origin/branch

This means that translators should use:

git checkout translation origin/translation
