	RAMON: CMFEditor :

	RAMON: no problem

- Capacity to work on the translation in language X in a non-public
environment and then publish the new translated site at once.
	RAMON: you can edit every thing on a state that is non-public and
folder by folder you can decide to publish or decide the date that it
must be published ...

- The i18n team says that native XML content or a good XML import/export
functionality is very important in order to make the wgo translations
compatible with their current workflow. (native XML is probably useful
for other things, although we haven't still evaluated this in the
context of wgo).

Not essential but quite recommendable:

- List of pages of language X with versions and translation status
compared to the English original site. It should be easy to find pages
not translated and outdated translations.
	RAMON: You can search for all pages on one language, workflow state ...
( it can be visible but not published if translation is not finished .. )

- User permissions to create/edit pages in one language only.
	RAMON: you can assign permissions to one folder ( /danish/ ) to one
grup ( danish translators )

- ? Start a new language translation on top of a copy of the original
English site, so you don't need to create again the pages and its
	RAMON: you can create a language and then if the content is not on the
language fallback to default language

One important thing is that on plone you normaly have owner, review and
manager roles. Owners are who edit, review who decide to publish and
managers.... admins :) These are the basic roles.
