Wanna see - check out "lalo's screenshot":http://plone.org/Members/lalo/2002_08_23_232235_shot.png/image_view -- WOW!
According to sidnei the backport of i18n took approx. 5 hours. Whoa. I think this is amazing. They are using Zope 2.5 with the ZPublisher from Zope-HEAD (thanks to Toby Dickersons unicode patch) and I am just stunned that it works. This effort is separate from Stephan Richter (cowboy coder extraordiniare) who is co-ordinating most of Zope2.7 release.
I expect to see Zope i18n congealing in the next 30-45 days and Plone translations happening before November! This is very
exciting. Hats off to Pythoneers who are making Zope/CMF/Plone accessible to a much wider audience.
