Re: Database schema

Yes, I know. That's the disadvantage.
On the other hand they will see changes on the fly. Also, as I understand,
Translators may use not only the original version of UMO(languagewise),
but other available translations to perform their translation.
Another thing is that if we don't implement it the way I suggested, it
means that if somebody is translating an UMO at the moment, neither Author
nor other Translators would be able to access this UMO. That's the
disadvantage too.
That's wierd if I want to change my UMO and can't do it because somebody
is translating it right now.
