Actually it seems that xorriso doesn't have a lot of common strings with
grub-mkisofs so probably there is no much value in reusing strings.
As for advice: you already have automake so adding gettext should be
easy change in followed by marking all translatable strings
with _() and including proper header.
But the hic is if xorriso uses any like
printf("Device %s is %s.", devname, valid ? "valid" : "invalid");
will need to be changed to:
printf(valid ?_("Device %s is valid."):_("Device %s is invalid."), devname);
since string operations are untranslatable.
