from a mail in Atheos mailing list :) sorry

" One of the things that I have found to be verry usefull under 'other'
 OS's is a unified way of translating Image/Text/Audio .. BeOS has a
 Translator Kit that is higly plugin based. Many of you may know - and
 love - it. I would like to bring something like that to AtheOS, however
 with some changes.
Why not some kind of plugin based framework for all this kind of media?
Someone that use Be can explain that thing?

bye bye

PD: sorry my pooor english
