Hi Jean-Marc,

well with the Fat Client basically everybody did his own
translation (but you are right, at least in proper context).

And yes i do fully agree on the idea of having context and translation
side by side. This would really help. However, i really think that this
feature requires a continuous integration and build platform alongside
with an international standard on translation plug-in integration (or
at least a best in class integration method). 

Maybe somebody could built and overlay plug-in for Odoo that allows to
do the translation from within the Odoo backend / frontend of a running
instance but storing the result of the translation on the translation
platform. I will briefly discuss that idea with my developers these
days but this seams at least possible but we still need a collaborative
translation platform WITH a properly documented translation API.

So i'd rather add an important selection criteria to the discussion
(i.e. API). What do you think?

Kind regards
