Description (last modified by nickm)

For our 30 September deliverable date, we need to make some progress on "automated translation seeding."

Runa asked "Are you talking about Google translator toolkit and Worldwide Lexicon?" And perhaps that is what Phobos was talking about, but perhaps not.

The first step here is to describe what the long-term requirement is, and what the September 30 requirement is, and edit this description to contain them.

Yes. Are there ways to integrate automated translation tools into the pootle we are running?

We're in talks with the transifex people for a migration from pootle to transifex for all translations. This may have the added side-benefit of more translators, since there are already thousands at transifex.

Runa and I decided automated translations are generally horrible, regardless of what machines want us to believe. We're punting on this for now.
