That is both more complicated and error prone to implement and more complicated and error prone to do. For every version of a translatable product that ever has been release you woulld need to have a separate database of translations in a central repository. Who is going to manage this central repository? What happens if that location goes down? Whap happens if you want to something on a PC before the IT department have opened a friewall so you are blocked from accessing the central repository? If you find a bug in the translation, how to you update the repository? From: "Stephan Richter" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > Well, no. Because then the products would get too large.

If the translations mean the products get too big (which I honestly doubt, I have never ever seen any example of a localization that is more than a couple of percent of the whole application) it would be no problem at all to have the translations downloadable separately if so desired by the producers. >Well, all the i18n developers will have a meeting early January in Europe >with Jim Fulton in a 2-day brainstorming session.
