[scribus-dev] Scripter2: Your feedback is required

If I may use this ML for discussion first. Actually, I have not yet used
the Scripter so extensively, so if I write something completely
irrelevant or stupid, please forgive me :D

I would definitely vote for some kind of easy localization. What I have
seen in some scripts is that multiple languages are somehow implemented
in the script itself, often via “if lang == "fr_FR": ...” This does not
really seem good coding :D Other scripts do not offer any localization,
making them English only.

What I imagine is the following:

In the script it should be possible to easily use the Gettext functions,
therefore being able to easily create translation files. Additionally,
the Scribus website should offer some kind of translation service, where
one can upload the script and then other people can translate it. It
would be good if this is then somehow linked to the main Scribus
translation: The scripts would be easier to find and presumably the same
people who translate Scribus would also translate the scripts, therefore
creating a more consistent translation. This would especially be nice
for larger or more popular scripts and lead to them being perceived as a
part of Scribus, not so much as “alien scripts”.

P.S.: I am definitely voting for Python 3!
