You do not mean that the sites in different languages will look the same

For the Drupal sites used on the OOo project, we manage the translation of
the Drupal files on Pootle, so I think we can do the same here. But for the

Automatic Translation will only occur on things which are considered
'instant communication' such as forums, mailing lists, and such.
The main section of the site (ie product information, support pages
etc.) will be manually translated either through pootle or directly on
the site.
If there is a page which does not have a native translation yet it
will display in english and allow the user to offer a translation
directly on the site if authorised as a translator.

To summarise we will be maintaining the integrity and quality of all
of the 'important' content while allowing cross-language communication
in real time for community discussions. I envisage that this should
break down a lot of barriers for people getting involved in the
