Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
SCOOP [or, rather, our own expectation of needing a relatively small amount of effort to make it work] has already contributed to aborting two ET spinoffs: Spanish and French.

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?

That was the 'As long as you speak English' caveat.

I'd guess it's not impossible to create a localisation-friendly version with language-specific elements grouped intelligently for easy tweaking. But it's a significant development effort.

The problem is that I'm not convinced any of the alternatives are friendlier for non-English localisation.

One option is to park the non-English Scoop project on SourceForge and open it up to interested developers. This should be quicker than trying to do it all in-house with limited experience and resources.
