[development] File upload and convert

Thank you for the suggestions folks.  

I still haven't managed to achieve what I want to do within the Drupal framework.  I know the failing is mine, not the platform.  However, since my deadline is fast approaching and I already know how I can cludge together a solution that will work but will not be making use of the Drupal Multilingual frame work I am going to go that route and hope to rework the module at a later date to do things right.

Thank you to everyone who tried to help me.

The poster is talking about developing code. If anything, that's OT for the support list, where I would expect questions such as "What module should I use for .... " and "What should I read?" and I "I have done this and that, and it still doesn't work. how might I proceed?"

The current description for the develop list is wrong since the core developers decided they didn't even know why they would use a mailing list all all and decided to use other means to discuss their affairs.

The current description for the develop list as changed after I joined it. I am not happy about that, because there is no alternative list that seems good for people who want to know about drupal code (core, modules,
whatever) and maybe write some of their own.

Whenever you feel the urge to tell people they are in the wrong place, treat them as a friend: explain to them why it is good for them to be in the other place. And, if you can, provide some kind of answer too.

If you can't do those things, say nothing, because there is nothing so unwelcoming as an unfriendly response, and I have seen some here. 
Specifically who seemed unfriendly, I don't recall.
