Great. I hardly dared to ask because I'm probably the only one who will
use this feature.

Yes, both languages are in fact similar to each other. Copying strings
as suggestions, however, is a little risky because there is the risk to
overlook minor differences.
Sometimes I use the strings from the locales tab even though there are
similar strings in the Machinery tab: For strings with plural rules, for
instance, because all plural strings are copied from the locales tab but
not from the Machinery tab.

Hm,I don't know. I think it's better to be in control of the existing
English strings. In fact, translating from Upper Sorbian into Lower
Sorbian is translating from a secondary language and not from the
primary/original language which is English.
