IIRC, you were told that translations of "official" openSUSE packages
are managed in a dedicated suse-i18n directory:
https://forgesvn1.novell.com/svn/suse-i18n/trunk/packages

Otherwise you are right, we must address this for Build Service
packages, too.

Generally, for upstream translations I recommend to enhance "intltools"
(if not already done) to extract the translatable strings from spec.in,
merge them into the .pot, and at "make dist" merge the translations from
the .po into the .spec.  For openSUSE, thus far we do not want to
"bloat" the .spec with translations.
