Hi Michael,

Thanks for this mail and writing out how it works/worked.
Sometimes it obviously is difficult to explain in three lines what you want to say ;-)

Sorry about any confusion with this issue of Translations,
localisation and internationalisation.

The Drupal framework is very powerful in this respect and the
confusion has developed due to the original decision to build the site
in English and then reach out to the native language teams. Obviously
a mistake as it seems that they currently feel left out. Let me
reassure all those who have a stake in this that we WILL make sure
Drupal works to suit all language groups requirements. We are still in
the 'infrastructure' or behind the scenes stage and this is very
important to get right before anything else.

I will be very busy working over the next 4 days, but after that I
will create an example presentation so that all language groups, the
documentation team and the marketing team can see what has been built
so far, what is planned and ***Where we need input***.

I would like to discourage speculation until this is produced. There
are quite a few long emails here, very few with the facts 100% right.
Again, our fault for not approaching and explaining this to native
language groups from the start.
