I'd like to have a few advises about Zope3 content localization.
My problem is as follow :
 - I have to build a new web site ; this site will mainly be in french
=> OK
 - some parts of the web site will be available in another language
(english, german and spanish) => OK

but :

 - some documents are available in several languages at the same time ;
they then have to be seen, from the contributor point of view, as a
single document written in several languages (of course, interfaces and
available fields will be the same for each language)
 - the same workflow is applied to all languages, but each language
version can be in a different step in the workflow (for example, the
french version can be published while the english one still have to be
validated and the german is still a draft ; the spanish one have yet to
be written...)
 - from the user point of view, language selection can be done via
browser settings or via a cookie-based setting ; but the different
versions of a same document have to keep the same URL.

>From now, I looked at Localizer and other Zope2 localization products
which gave me a few ideas, but I'd really like to have as many advises
as possible about this problem and the better way it should be handled
in Zope3.

Thanks for any advise,
