Hi James,

I speak none of these languages, and understand nothing in medicine, 
but generally I think it is a very good idea, and it would be great if 
other projects followed. I would really like to see some cross-project 
(meta) coordination (initiated be several projects, not just by English 
Wikipedia) which would result to translation/improvement of content in 
several projects.
