This is extraordinary!

If you have a website, you could
provide this service via a Rev CGI.

The user enters your webpage, paste their
code in a field and click on buttons to
set options and send the data to your
stack running in RevCGI.

I have cgi running in my site, if you are
interested to make this available this way.

Are you going to comment on every translation?

This will become like a Rosetta stone for
developers. It's an exciting development tool.

It'll be highly useful if you provide
comments on the translation choices
along with the translation.

I'm sure that some expressions could be
handled in different ways. An explanation
is always welcome.

So, When do we see this tool? :-))
