> Multiple language fallback
> --------------------------
>          Key: SQ-91
>          URL: http://tracker.immuexa.com/browse/SQ-91
>      Project: squeakland
>         Type: Improvement
>   Components: etoys, translation
>     Reporter: team
>     Priority: Eventual
>      Fix For: M2: second alpha (june)
>  Attachments: multiFallback-KR.1.cs.gz
> From TRAC Ticket #6946 (korakurider)
> For not fully tranlated langauges it would be useful to fallback to language other than English when translation isn't registered for some phrase.
> see discussion in http://lists.laptop.org/pipermail/etoys/2008-April/002141.html and threads pointed/following.
> This feature needs several enhancement:
> + Enhancement to translation engine. Proposed patch (multiFallback-KR.1.cs) has been attached.
> + Enhancement to locale plugin so that multiple languages setting in base operating system (e.g. $LANGUAGE) will be passed to Etoys.
> + User interface for the setting in image.
> Difficult point is how to control which font will be used for each language; it shouldn't be that one "universal" font covers all possible code points. So we might want to assign set of fonts when $LANGUAGE="mn:ja_JP", but this is not possible in current design of Squeak.
