[quote author="Cochise" date="1291944060"]My 2 cents:
The intenacionalization must be a built in feature in the wiki, not a woraround with category, page titles or tags.
Every creation of a page the author select the language of then, and the wiki store the information of the language and what translations are created.
Then, the header automatcly show the already tranlated versions and a option <<Translate to: [list of untranslated languages]>>.
With the dates of edit is possible show a warning of outdated pages too.
The url pattern for the transated pages must follow thepattern of groups <<:Xx:Group:SubGroup::Article>>.[/quote]
This sounds good. But which automatism can decide when articles up to the language are the same?
(apart from the point that the realisation of technical solutions is time consuming)
The WikiWay suggests "'The Simplest Thing that Could Possible Work'":http://www.artima.com/intv/simplest.html .
It's hard to get the complete requirements for a thing, that is not even be in use somewhere: I don't know any wiki engine that provides this feature and - therefore - no community that actually benifits from such a feature.
Please don't misunderstand me. I love great software. And the devnet wiki engine is of sure far from this. But I think, the more built-in features a wiki engine has, the more the creativity will be restricted to build (new) concepts for organizing information.
...I'm afraid my writing abilities are far from the convincing power of my minds (on me;)).
