Default [TRANSLATION] Why don't we run a online translation platfrom?

It's difficult to contribute a translation now. We have to sync the repo, edit the XML carefully, and make a commit for every single language. That's not easy for average users who want to contribute translations. And revising translations is going complex, too.
I find that CM is using such an online translation service to help that, why not try it for OmniROM? Thanks~

CM only started doing that recently, and I know it is something @XpLoDWilD has thought of in the past... We just haven't had the time.

Honestly our translation process is one area where we really need a lot of work. I would prefer, though, if someone like plodey or max or another person whose native language is not English works on this, as they're more in tune with what translators need.
*so much sig updating needed*

An excellent post on "noobs vs. developers"

A few opinions on kernel development "good practices"

Note: I have chosen not to use XDA's "friends" feature - I will reject all incoming "friend" requests.

Got it. When it's ready, I'll be eager to contribute some Chinese translations!

Is this already running? How could I contribute to the translation?
