something I forgot to mention.

I do not necessarily mean to discourage to translate CLI or server side
If we have enough resources to translate and review all of them, no problem.
At now, most translators are volunteers and I hope our survey results help
choose materials they work on.

Company-backed translators may have more time and have different criteria.
I welcome them and would like to collaborate so that we can have consistent
translation guidelines.

> We, Japanese community, made a rough survey on the interest
> in translated materials in OpenStack 5th birthday event in Japan (in July).
> It was done in a lightning talk and we roughly count the number of raised
> hands.
> We have >300 folks in the hall.
> The question is very simple:
> Do you want or use translated version of the following or use English
> version?
> The results are as follows. The numbers are percentage of interested folks.
> - Horizon : 70~80%
> - Documentations : 40~50% (as long as they are kept up-to-date)
> - CLI : <5% (7~8 of >300)
> - Log messages : 0 (I could not find raised hands)
> The following is my impression on priories in Japanese translations.
> - Horizon and documentations: should be prioritized. horizon first.
> - CLI: low priorities
> - log messages: Lowest priorities.
> - User visible messages from server projects: low priorities
>    (though our survey didn't cover it).
>    Note that it need to be prioritized if Horizon use these strings
> directly.
> This is just my impression, and other languages must have different
> priorities.
> Thanks,
> Akihiro
