AFAIK MS Office does not ship different templates in the US and in Europe. Cannot templates be made mostly country-neutral if contributors are asked to avoid adding too nationally-rooted details?It depends on the category of templates. For Writer for example, a simple letter presents a lot of differences depending on the country (it's even not language specific). The page format will be different, the date, margins, location of the addresses, ect...Ah, OK. This may need some careful work by localization teams. But for more informal documents, offering a few good-looking templates is not a problem.
yes, so don't hesitate to submit your template on the dedicated mailing list :)
Of course text must be translated (if present), but this can be done like GUI labels. If the contest is only for en_US, then most locales won't get any templates at all, which is worse than getting an English template. So better start with the idea that templates will have to be translated.Yes. The time frame for 4.4.0 is too short but we don't want to kill the enthusiasm of the Design team, so let's have the first contest for en_US and the localization team will then work on their internationalization.Right. But to motivate people outside of the US, better say loudly that templates will eventually be translated.
I'm sure that will be said on the next iterations of the contest.
