IMHO it would also be nice if you could somehow do the translation on client 
side. i.e. the server sends only a message id and possibly QString::arg() 
arguments or an untranslated message and possibly arguments. In the latter 
case those untranslated messages would need to be added to the client (e.g. 
#include'd) with I18N_NOOP for it to work. That way it would be possible for 
each player to choose her own GUI language independent of the server and the 
other players.

Just my 2ยข
