How to properly translate a Wordpress theme with the option to upgrade?

The theme is not translated to Russian by default. Want to use Loco Translate, but I see a warning that when you update the theme data will be lost. How opravdanna this sequence of actions:
1. To create a child theme.
2. To do the translation for her.

Because I make changes to css and other files, only the version with your child theme looks like able to get updates.

Maybe I overlook any complications? 've never done that before, would love to hear that this is a normal variant.

Yes, it is. But if the subject is in the official repository, it is possible to translate there, and then ask one of the admins to check the theme and all.
