    First tests in multilingual context are very encouraging:
    well written sources, good integration of php, get text functions...
    confortable user experience

    BUT

    when using child theme and adding a new po/mo, the name of file is improper (theme-name-xx_YY.mo like in wp-content/languages/themes subfolder) and not as expected like xx_YY.mo in languages-sub-folder of child theme.
    AND
    a little annoying thing : the link under 'powered by loco', contains datas of our installation without previous webmaster agreement ?
    QUESTION ?
    Where are saved data during working period ? (DB ?, Options table ?)

    In response to all your points:

    when using child theme [..] the name of file is improper

    Thanks for pointing this out. I'm not familiar with child themes, so I will look at this and see if I can fix it for the next release.

    the link under 'powered by loco', contains datas of our installation

    Ok, fair point. I will remove the domain name from future versions, although this will be sent as a referrer header anyway unless your admin area is on SSL. I hope you'll feel the rest of the data (plugin version) is unintrusive.

    Where are saved data during working period ? (DB ?, Options table ?)

    Plugin options (from settings tab) are stored in the options table.

    Some further cached data (for speed) is stored in the options table as WordPress "transients" unless you have APC, in which case that it used.

    The rest of the data (translations) is just stored in the PO files themselves.

    Later this year there will be a cloud storage/sync option so you can collaborate with others. This will be done via the Loco API, but that isn't ready yet.
