Hi Anne-Marie

like you know I am Italian and I was already talking to Nicola about the 
international part of his games. There are also other problems For 
example there are games that are specific of the Italian Language so a 
translation is not enough.
We are working to put the code in the playground and then to port the 
games to an international level.
We are also thinking some of the games can be integrated in already 
existing games (Pairs, Kanagram, Kwordquiz).
I think we will launch some discussions for the mailing list about 
internationalization before we go
down to the technical aspect of QML, kvtml and accessibility.
