I'm looking for a not-overly-complicated system to manage the tracking of
system messages and screen text for an app.

It's not a CMS - that is, I'm not going to update the app directly from
this tracking system. It's a tracking system for each piece of text so that
developers can see what edits are needed and which ones haven't been done
yet. It will also serve as a master for all the texts.

Suggestions better than a spreadsheet?

Thanks in advance,
Steve Schwarzman
