I guess this should come up on the -marketing-list.

In terms of this group, I encourage everyone to adapt the phrase as
they like in their language, if the phrase doesn't make sense in your
local language and idioms. I'd say change it completely if you think
it's best. That's why we call it "localization" and not just
"translation" right? :-)

In Greek I transferred it as "Waves of change".
