We just raised the issue about internatl communication. In my point of
view the translation committe goals is to allow access to the main
informations to non english speaking personn. I see now that saying
translation committee wasn't a good a thing. The idea is more about an
internal communication committe.

As I said before, I was planning to wait for the Volounteer
Coordinator to hired and then begin to work and discuss on what can we
do. Obviously Sandy is more than welcom to help at this :)
