Initial Comment:

rSpec, really cool, using it at my current job and will continue to use it and promote the good word.  To help me in my endeavors, it would be great if there was language support.  

See, it makes a lot of sense to read a Story using Given, When, And, Then, but if I could write the story as Cuando, Si, Y, Entonces, that would be much more appealing documentation for my boss and easier to catch on to from my developer colleagues that do not speak that much English.

Hi Dave,

That sounds great to me, maybe some sort of rspec configuration file, very 
basic but powerful.  Just by being able to alias methods with whatever is more 
appropriate would be great.  

Developers have to learn English to keep up with the latest techniques but 
employers don't.  And it will definitely make a difference to show the 
specs/stories/documentation of their app in their native language.

Looking forward to hearing more about this feature.

We should set up some way to configure things so that you could choose the words you want to use for Story/Scenario/Given/When/Then/And.

I don't think we should have implicit support for any language other than English unless we're going to support them all :)
