Guys, let me know if you are interested in the following features:
1. User interface internationalization - i.e. translation of buttons, checkboxes, tips etc. on your language. Would it be useful or English is OK?
2. Separating translations from the main script. The main script will be slimmer and faster, while you will be able maintain translations on your own. I suggest to extract the following features:
a) UI translations (optional, see 1)
b) translation of check titles, problem descriptions, howtos and links localization
c) enabling/disabling checks for the country
d) managing exceptions and check parameters
Let me know what you guys think before I start to implement the functionality.
I would also like to hear if the script startup time in v0.6.2 is still an issue for you.
Yes, I think localizations would be helpful, as it would widen the user circle (not every editor is fluent in English). The translations can probably be handled by string lists, which could be fed to you by local persons or groups in each country. In particular, I like the idea of having localized links to wiki/howto references.
About 2c): I suggest to have a default enabled/disabled check list for each country, where each user can then individually edit his list. A reset-to-default functionality should allow fixing screwed-up configurations.
I don't quite understand what 2d) means.
