I'd also like to point out that there is much very good documentation
written in German that we would like to translate into English, if
someone had the time and skills to do so. (In some cases -- for
example the Draw Guide -- the German team took an English document and
improved it; in other cases -- for example, the chapter on DataPilot
in the Calc Guide -- they replaced it with a better one in German.)

If German-speaking people can help with translations, but don't think
their English is good enough, that is not really a problem. Once we
have a translation into English, then several of us can revise it into
"better" English.

Same for any other language.
