Hi, just an idea:

I think a good solution for this could be to allow a Kimdaba database to 
have more than one description field, in this way the differents 
descriptions fields could be used to make descriptions in different 
languages or for any other purpose, such descriptions made by different 
persons.
Later, using the Kimdaba export feature, anyone can export the data to a 
new database with only the description field she/he wants (Spanish 
language description, for example).

Well, lets see what Jesper thinks about all this.

Greetings,
Rafael
