I disagree completely. I wouldn't touch a new language or technology 
without first reading content. Neither would my boss, or any other 
manager for that matter. This is not a watch, a garment, a toothpaste or 
a burger. It is a software product, which needs a lot of content. Of 
course it is hard to get the right amount of content that neither 
overwhelms nor conveys the message.

The few words in captions should indeed be conveying the message. Which 
brings up a good question - what message does want to convey? 
Is doing that?
