    there’s 15 screencasts planned until end of feb. I assume of course we will have some technology available to localize it. And the material as video plus voice off-screen.If the material can the be localized automatically, it would be great help: subtitles and english FF are no good.

    This whole subject should be discussed and explained in public – at the next sumo meeting for instance.

    Hey Vito,
    We have a roundtable item in the weekly meeting agenda where we can certainly discuss this. Videos will always be a problem for localization and each locale will have to determine if it’s worth the work they require. The bottom line is that the article should work without the video and if an English video in a non-English article does more harm than good it can just be removed.
