Pretty sure Mono can compile and consume resx translations. MonoDevelop doesn't have an editor for them but you could edit the text/xml files manually.

The gettext addin doesn't work on Windows in MD 2.6 and older. It must have got into the installer package by accident. It was fixed recently - I think the fix is in  MD 2.8b3, but if not, it'll be in the next beta/rc/release.
