Jetspeed is already using i18n (or is it l10n?) for most of its strings.
We use the Turbine 2.2 localization service for client specific 
ResourceBundles lookup and caching.

I think Tomcat has also some effort already done.

The main problem I see in your proposal is not coding it, but getting 
any/some/most of the jakarta projects to use the code, and agree in ways 
to handle the files back and forth as the development process 
progresses. Also, I think this is not a pure java issue, and looking at 
it from the whole Apache might help (as the web sites and the project 
documents would also need translation effort).

I think a project which would take care of document and/or Resource 
bundle translation, coordinated with each Apache project requiring so 
would be a great thing in terms of infrastructure.

I cc: community for insight, since there is much more in Apache than 
jakarta (even in the java world, there is a lot of  XML people working 
in java)
