Well, my conclusion would be different here: what you reported, Javier, clearly shows that Rosetta still needs much work to be able to fit your expectations...:-) In short, let's be positive rather than negative. I think that most of the problems you experienced can probably be experienced in other web-based translation tools...or more generally in any translation system that could be too much "outside" the upstream software authors and external translators. This is something we should discuss with the people in charge of Rosetta in Ubuntu...which is what I expect from exchanges to handle at Debconf, and later in Extremadura. This is precisely one of the reasons which make me hope we will have Michael or any other Ubuntu people in Extremadura (and at Debconf!), as well as people from the Pootle/Wordforge project (Javier Sola already mentioned me in private that he would be interested in coming) or from the transdict project. These issues are faced by all these projects and are more "social" than really "technical" issues (or, better said, they are social issues that will drive technical developments).
