Another user from El Salvador wanted to make a Spanish translation and maybe it is a good idea to discuss a few things before doing it

There are a few decisions to make:

1) One version with multiple languages, or multiple versions?
I am strongly in favour of the first alternative, as it reduces maintainance and give flexibility to the enduser. I think it is worth the few extra KBs.
Another consideration is the possibility of installing language packs via PupGet.
2) "Standard" ways of i18n or custom solutions ?
For shell scripts, gettext seems the way to go. It's an 8kb executable on my Ubuntu. This should be fairly easy to include.
I am not an C library expert. Is gettext() included in the puppy version of libc ?
For the menu system: multiple config files versions or automatic menu generation ?
The first one is simple to implement, but harder to maintain when there are multiple window managers and languages.
I like the "menu" package from Debian (http://devel.santafelinux.com/source/menu-2.1.15/), but it depends on libstdc++ (can we circumvent that ?) and is not that small.
Do you know alternatives from other (mini) distributions ?

How are we gonna translate into Vietnamese? Barry has mentioned an interest in making Puppy available for other languages (I feel this is a good plan) even though English is the main - internet language

OK gonna have a go at translating into Japanese (using Babelfish or similar) as a first step - then maybe Cantonese . . . then Arabic and Hebrew . . .

Hi !

How are we gonna translate into Vietnamese? (Lobster)

I thinks that, gonna translate into Vietnamese, you must finish such as :

1. Supported locale UTF-8 (only en_US.UTF-8 or vi_VN.UTF-Cool.
We are processing ! (not finish yet !) Smile --> not yet OK !

If not Supported locale UTF-8 then not install software typing Vietnamese!

2. Show Vietnamese font --> OK !

3. Translations to Vietnamese ! --> many people using Vietnamese will help us ! I know a org support translate into Vietnamese ! --> OK

....

I thinks that, Puppy need supported locale UTF-8 first !

Thanks,
