New Article: "Social Translation of NetBeans Platform Applications"

There's quite a lot of information out there about internationalizing NetBeans Platform applications, but an interesting new angle is presented by Enrico from the studioSL project at Streamsim Technologies: "Social Translation of a NetBeans Platform Application":

Partway down the article a reference is found to how the Gephi project manages social translations:

That's a cool link to read. Thanks to the experiences at Streamsim and Gephi, it seems Transifex and Pootle are useful solutions to explore when considering social translation of an application and something I'll be doing soon.
