There was a small update to the translation source that needs to be
reflected across the other language versions (I've already updated the
language sources, so you should just have to translate what's in
English on that page).
A few people have asked what the "Special" section means and if that
should be translated. What it is is that you update it with the
information specific to your language. For example, French is mostly
spoken in France, so they might want the default currency to EUR/€.
Also, for things like the "Jimmy quote" that was used last year we
will need to use "quotes". Some languages do not use the standard
English quotes, so we would like to support them. To go again with
the French example, we would mark that they use « for the left quotes
and » for the right quote.
You also have the option of updating the default amounts. For
example, the defaults of "30", "75", and "100" would not work at all
for Yen/¥... it would be very strange to see that. :-)
Thanks for all your hard work so far in translating the fundraiser
items! Sorry about the small change to the source! :-(

help is appreciated translating
into other languages (ideally directly in the respective Wikibooks
language versions). This is the help for the recently enabled open
source wiki-to-print toolkit. Let me know if I can answer any
questions that would help with translation. :-)
