It can be as simple as one-to-one tranlation between symbol sets. Zoom's
example, "store" <-> ¿â(zh-cn) <-> Žì(zh-tw), is a simple character
translation. There is a one-to-one (not really) mapping betwenn zh-cn and
zh-tw. So it is easy to implement.

Another level is word (or phrase) translation. For example, "software" <->
Èí¼þ(zh-cn) <-> Ü›ów(zh-tw). Where Èí<->Ü› could be done by character translation,
but ¼þ<->ów couldn't. So you have to do word translation before character

As I know,  MediaWiki is capable of doing word and character translation.
However, sophisticated system should do more, such as context analyzing. But
it is another story.

Because no chinese jumped on implementing it. :) And western people

I wish I could jump on implementing it. But I have no skill about Python and
my full-time job makes me very busy recently :p
