comment What is a good globalization pattern for user-entered content?
Thank you, these are some insightful comments. Usually, third party translators will be providing the content to our clients (as opposed to translation engines). So our clients will just be inputting the data to share with their associates and business partners in various countries (sometimes the goal is to collect data from these users as well, so they might also be translating custom form labels). Still, your suggestion for comparison tools will be valuable for some clients.

comment What is a good globalization pattern for user-entered content?
I like idea #1, I will sketch that out and see how it feels. I thought about #2 previously, but it seems to imply you have to select one language and not that all are available for editing. That could perhaps be overcome by using a different widget and not a regular drop down field, or a very carefully-worded label. Thanks for the input.

comment What do you call the customizable boxes like in my.yahoo.com?
+1, but I feel like "portlet" is more of a developer's term. I would avoid using that word on the UI
