It wouldn't even need to! If your project had the same translatable string in it as secret project X, then translations from project X would also show up in the UI as suggestions for your project — with attribution to the person and project they came from.

That's probably something we could change with ease: just stop offering translations from secret projects as suggestions. The real question of course would be how many other such “information leaks” you'd have to track down.
