 Is anyone interested in localizing their Android application to Thai or
Vietnamese for delivery on SlideME?  It looks like there is a lot of demand
for localized applications in these countries. We can help developers get
things started, show you how we do our builds, and then see about lining up
people who would be willing to help translate for you. We've got some code
at Masa:  http://code.google.com/p/masa/ for translating back and forth 
between po files and strings.xml so that would assist translations. If there
is enough interest, we will get things started from our side.

1. ScrollView and TextView

I've found this on here before by my example is a little different.  I
have put a TextView inside a ScrollView so I could scroll the text
(TextView DOES NOT scroll itself).  HOWEVER, I am using
"android:layout_gravity:bottom" so all the text in the TextView will
align at the bottom.  However, this is making it so the ScrollView
never scrolls.  Can you PLEASE help me out?  Thanks!  Here's my XML
layout:

<ScrollView
android:id="@+id/chatview"
android:orientation="vertical"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="203px">
        <TextView
        android:id="@+id/chatscreen"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_x="2px"
        android:layout_y="2px"
        android:layout_gravity="bottom">
        </TextView>
</ScrollView>
