Oggetto: Re: [Maria-discuss] italian translation

> We actually want to setup a structure to support translations inside our 
KB, I just haven't had the time to design or implement it. My two 
concerns are how to properly display content in another language and how 
to keep translated articles up to date when the English version is 
updated (or vice versa). If you have any ideas, please let me know.

My suggestion to make it easier to keep the documents up to date is: to 
implement (if it does not already exist) a tool like Wikipedia. In Wikipedia you 
can see all old versions of every page. Then, there's a tool which  compares the 
versions and shows what has been added / deleted / modified in the newest 
version. This way, translators should only add a note in the translated document 
like "Original document's version: 1111".
I hope my suggestion will be of some use.

try to work on supporting other languages soon since people are actually 
translating articles.

Thanks! I'll start the translation in the next few days and I'll let you know as 
soon as I have something.
