Hi Marek.

You don't have to justify why we should allow Polish language alongside English for our content. We'll be much happy to include any other language.

The welcome page, for example, is available in 11 languages. The page on HTML in two. So you see, all pages can have translations, and we encourage that.

I'm also planning to write Hindi content when I'm less busy.

But keep a few things in mind. Thoroughly familiarise yourself with the technicalities involved in another-language content and Wiki-style editing on WPD. Also, check other translations and learn how they handle terms which cannot have replacements (you cannot substitute width with the Polish word for width!).

Kindly search around on how to begin. We're here always to help.
