Unfortunately Jimbo doesn't speak every language that Wikipedia is in. What is 
needed, are people who are fluent in both English and another language to act 
as intermediaries between Jimbo and foreign language (to Jimbo) press 

It would be very unfortunate and embarrassing for all involved if Jimbo 
answered his phone and couldn't understand the reporter at the other end and 
they could not understand him. So please help by placing your name at 

We are also still looking for more translators. Polish, Swedish, Danish, and 
Dutch are specifically mentioned and linked to in the press release, but so 
far nobody has volunteered to translate the press release into those 
languages. I think that doing so would be a great service to especially those 
Wikipedia versions. Of course, this press release is mainly about the whole 
project, so all versions are encouraged to translate the press release and 
distribute it when the time comes.
