Good, I like it in principle, but how will be changes being tracked
using SHA IDs?

Currently, translations have a SHA ID which is that of the snippet it
is a translation of. Any change to the original snippet is done in a
commit whose SHA ID is used to generate a diff against the ID of the
translation. This determines what the translators have to work on.
