ClientSide News has just done an interesting article on MadCap Lingo
(which I've picked up myself but haven't had a chance to play with
and know almost nothing about at this point). They seem to like it a
lot. There's also an article in this issue about the basics of
software localization that I want to pass on to my tech writing
students as a resource: it talks about space requirements and the
idea of cultural color preferences and so on, all those things that
you want to get the kids to start thinking out-of-the-box about.

Yours truly,
