If you have only 2 translators, then it may not be a problem, it gets 
more difficult with 10. And if you have 20+ translators to a language, 
peer-to-peer communication has proven not to be ideal. In this way, 
everyone is informed of who is doing what. You only have to [Take] a 
module once, and then it belongs to you until the translation is 
finished, or you [Release] it. We believed this mechanism to be 
extremely helpful.
