If you want to edit translation files in .po file format (as used by
Guix), I prefer that gets
mentioned in the Guix manual. Alternatively there exist other programs

I think Francis is talking about something more like a combination of Google 
translation and bilingual dictionaries?

If that's the case, I don't know of any options...
Neither do I know any particularly good tool. There was some work on
libre machine-learning-based translation engines, but the last time I
checked, none of them was actually usable to me - none supported Polish
and all had deps that were not available from APT (I was not yet using
Guix at that time).

On these lines, the best option I’m aware of is the relatively new Mozilla 

I don’t think it’s been packaged for Guix yet, but I don’t know of any reason 
why it couldn’t be. The front-end demonstrated at downloads language support files on-demand, 
but I think it could be patched to also package the models. Language support is 
not comprehensive, but it does include Polish.

Some of the underlying work is grouped under the Bergamot project: Much of the substantive source code seems to be at: I think it would be easy (but 
I haven’t tried) to write a front-end in GTK, Qt, or similar instead of the 
HTML+JS front-end.


Another option is libretranslate. There's a web version, and the source code is FOSS and suitable for Guix IMO.
