As part of his Summer of Code project, Nikerabbit is now developing the "Translate" extension. Translate is there to help with the translations of the many text that need ... translating. They are the press releases, the election statements and all the other texts.
This is an example of what it looks like; a legenda on top followed by the text in "your" language. When you want to translate, you click on the "Deze pagina vertalen" text in the top left corner.
At the moment the code is being developed, the documentation needs writing and I am sure that more testing will smooth the experience. In the mean time it is functionality that I think will prove to be really welcome.
