Interested I am. This is on my todo list also. I looked into this a
while back. The plan was to use DogTail to automate the process of
taking the shots in each language[1], by running a script in the help
directory. The problem was that dogtail didn't run properly on my system

Thumbs up for Python.

I still think the border fade, or whatever effect, would be best
implemented by Yelp though.

if you have the french locale installed.
