Hi,

Sure the PO file are very convenient for translation. And sure, there are  
a plenty of scripts to extract the text from SVG (as it is pure XML).  
Examples:

1. po4a can extract the text.

2. Scripts from Inkscape docs can do this:
http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~inkscape.dev/inkscape-docs/trunk/files/head:/tutorials/

There will be no problems if the banner sizes can be variable (more or  
less like Fedora countdown pictures).

The problem is that the banners are relatively small and of strict sizes  
so the arbitrary translation can fit them only after some tweaks with text  
block and font sizes.

Just my 2 cents.

BTW, what is the appropriate format to submit localized images to Bugzilla  
report (SVG, PNG, JPEG)? Make-Fedora-Better.svg will likely to be changed,  
where is our Heisenbug? ;)

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Best regards,
Yuri
