Internationalising Openmolar

I was approached by 2 fine gents who offered to translate OpenMolar.

Firstly Ariel Cornejo offered a Spanish translation, closely followed by Philippe Le Toquin who offered a French Version.

Anyways, the experience has been 100% positive. Lots of fun, and valuable learning again. The Gnu Gettext stuff, and the Launchpad translation facilities are very well thought out. Ditto Python's own implementation of such tools.

The screenshots to the right show the application
switching into French Mode.

Tres bon, n' est ce pas??

I'll do a technical write up on what I learned in doing this over on the openmolar wiki.
