Hi Aphaia san,
Hm, google doesn't prefer we communicating in our own languages ;(

I have read your posts in both Wikimedia-l and
Wikimania-l and I'm glad that you (and others in
Transcom) would like to help on translation issues. Yes I agree it would be good if there
least one person can coordinate on translation and we do see the needs for this kind of
because we already have some queries from Italy to say they also would like to help on
and interpreting between EN and IT.
We are better now to set up "translators & coordinators" page?
And I think the coordinator is not necessary to be an
Chinese (or Taiwanese). I will discuss with the team on this issue and will let you (and
Thank you for your consideration!
Now the questions.
When I send the reply I thought the communication in the organization for Wikimania
Foundation and us is mainly in English, but I think now we should also consider other

It means you two will care for translation in general as coordinators?
If someone would like to discuss about translation, he or she is
recommended to mail both of you? Communications are a bit broader idea
than mere press contact a/o translation coordination.
One relevant question; I am a bit curious why names of people who
helped past Wikimanias' translation into Chinese didn't appear on your
list. Are there any inconvinience for their involvement? (One
possible answer I can guess is they are now blocked from editing; one
editor I recall is in the Mainland).
Thanks again for your help and, we still wish to know
if there's any speaker from Japan you can
Ahem, I am afraid I misunderstood the request; I supposed you or the
programm team (I can be included though) first think who Wikimania
2007 would like to have and then I assign the list we are going to
contact. Would you like me to suggest names?
I think perhaps we will do better works if we are working
collaborative. Would you like me to invite Japanese project editors to
submit their ideas? (Perhaps via wikija-l)
Last question: the dates of the conference are fixed already?
