(Chris - your question is very good, timely and relevant, so CC'ing
server-devel, hope that's ok)

There are 2 parts that may be localised...

  - The commandline tools - low priority, only exposed to the sysadmin
team that manages the deployment. They have to be unix/linux geeks

  - The XS "UI": Moodle. This is what's worthwhile translating. We'll
use Moodle with a couple of customisations. The customisations are
still evolving but Moodle's strings are well established. The problem
is that it doesn't use Pootle, it uses its own translation strings
stuff. I've been discussing this... see

   Some discussion on Moodle.org (use the login-as-guest button)

   Discussion on server-devel

   Look for 'pootle' in this irc meeting log

   Googling right now, I see someone has a pootle-to-moodle
translation tool, w00t!?
