http://wiki.okfn.org/ckan/i18n/ may be useful

We could create a translation team on transifex for you if that would be useful.

Unfortunately google generates these horrendous uuids. At the moment
you can't easily change it -- it's a pretty easy fix and one that has
now been requested a couple of times so we should do it asap :)

BTW: you can do openid delegation so your website is your openid
(though not sure this works will all openid providers):

You can have any postgres db you want, not sure how easy it is to
change the pg schema being used ...
