            When the semi-literate American developers learn to

            spell their own language and perhaps then go on to

            learn another easier language, making their own

            code bi-lingual, they will have a justification

            for asking busy literate non-English speaking

            developers to translate their documentation.

            It looks to me as if this project is very successful.

            Maybe they are meeting a need in the Spanish-speaking

            world and should concentrate on that and not worry

            about those who already have plenty of English-documented solutions

            to pick from.

            BIF's intention is to save you from programming those common things that all applications have, leaving you time to code your business functionality. That's the idea of a framework, not make magic and correct the bad programmer's code.
