Yup, translation mixed with various publishing-related things.

Oh I'll definitely post anything I get working properly -- I'm not shy!
Just hampered by the fact that programming is a hobby only, and my elisp
skills are barely passing from "beginner" into "intermediate".

The two larger things I'm working on are work-related. One is a
translation environment built on top of Orgmode, that stores
translations in a TMX XML format, and provides a limited follow mode and
automatic translation. My question in this thread isn't about that,
exactly, but I'm hoping to learn some useful lessons from it. I wouldn't
be surprised if I'm the only one who ever uses this package.

The other is a major mode for creating and editing Epub ebooks. There
aren't many good free Epub tools out there, and I think emacs could be a
great environment for that.

Both of these will take me a very long time! Both, incidentally, are
currently bogged down in emacs' limited XML parsing/manipulation
abilities. But I'll definitely post something on the wiki once I have
some bits and pieces that work. I see my wiki profile is out of date,
maybe I'll start with that.

Of course! It's a good suggestion, and you've been very helpful to me on
several occasions in the past. It seems that, thankfully, the curtain is
now drawn on the orgmode drama.
