Forum OpenACS Development: DotLRN side effect
If we would have this functionality, it would greatly increrease the marketing potential of OpenACS. This may make little sence at first, but for example, what everybody calls an invoice, is called "Folio" in the hotel industry. I would think, the more flexible OpenACS is to adapt to industry specific language, the more chance we have getting the toolkit accepted as a mainstream technology communication platform. Kudos to the guys that created the translation interface.
I'm sure, it will be given a thought, given the potential for dotLRN, dotWRK, dotORG and other implementations.
However, making different versions in one language, implicates the need for subsite- and package awareness too. For example, there could be a difference in semantics between different classes, communities and etcetera.
