/*** i18n/l10n of Linux Foundation/OpenPrinting Web Site ***/

- The web site already supports i18n (mechanism to switch language).
- It may be required to provide localized (Japanese) contents.
  -> We should start with study to localize contents in priority order.
        i.e. Top Page should be translated first. etc.etc
- There are many access to printer driver download.  Some vendors links
to the download page from their sites.
  -> Download page for such printers may need to be translated first.
    -> Vendors cannot decide which page should be translated first, if
it is a community driver.
  -> Does the driver download page have a mechanism to switch language?
     -> foomatic db has it.  CMS has it.  ... but are they linked?
        (Japanese web page requests foomatic db for japanese contents?)
  - In the future when vendor upload their printer driver, overall study
should be needed.

  -> At this time, we start to study Japanese translation of following
pages.  (timing - LF web site renewal?)
