I am interested to know how an Italian non-English speaking software engineer might be able to collaborate on a C/C++ program running on Linux that was written by English-speaking software engineers. We anticipate using Eclipse as a develpment environment, and from what I see so far, it sounds like Babel may be able to help us, but I'm having trouble understanding exactly what Babel is, what it actually does and how it works.
Can anyone point me at some documentation, tutorials, testimonials, or just describe the big picture of what Babel is and how it fits in with a development environment or project?
For example, can I use Babel to convert all the comments and variable names in a source code tree from English to Italian and vice versa? Is it a symmetric conversion, ie. would I get the same thing back if I made no changes and just translated from English to Italian and back to English?
Does the IDE matter? Could Babel handle a Visual Studio source tree?
Thanks in advance for any help with this!
