Since I'm a fairly active programmer, I have some code sitting around. If I
can get some support on commons with regards to templates (something that
gives me nightmares) I could probably get a translation matrix program up
and running within 24-48 hours. I would just need to figure out a good
method for tracking what needs translated, what has been machine translated
and needs review, and what has already been translated.
