Jupp, I thought of that as well. We would need intermediaries which is 
not really the best way to go! On the other hand this can be as well an 
advantage for spreading the knowledge about e.g. cocoon (translator and 
dev will have to understand the problematic). Dunno how to best deal 
with that. I hope there are enough bilingual people that could help with 
that (then there wouldn't be that big problem with translation).

That's good news so.

Thank you very much for your thoughts and for the link!
