Do you mean *invent* or *locate* three different sites?

And keep in mind our skill-testing question in all linguistics-related
guidelines: Can I make this work right now in Maltese or Estonian?



GV:  create of course.   As with any new technique (or web technology)
you
want independent implementations but you don't have implementations
before you create the technique. 

RE Maltese or Estonian  - they are covered because SC only applies to
languages for which the resources exist.
