  While I'm not quite sure it's what you're looking for, cross-cultural
factors come into play a lot and seriously affect trust.  I work with an
organization that (in turn) works with Chinese activists & organizers.
 It's a bit of a catch-22 that tools and guides in Chinese dialects are
critically important, but tools made in China aren't necessarily trusted.
 (Though this is probably owing to the extreme levels of infiltration in
activist communities there).  But tools that aren't trusted might be used
more often than non-translated alternatives.

...It's problematic.
