    • JWG is designing a set of translation workflow assistant tools and translation assistant tools
    • JWG would also like to introduce a set of roles (translation coordinator, committer, reviewer, and translator) to control the quality of the translations (see more details in the long talk presenation link below)
    • Denis liked the design, but recommeded adding a web interface so that translators can translate the doc files without having to install the plug-in
    • We had the idea captured on paper, including Denis's upside down hand writings and completed with his beer bottle seal of approval :-)
