*Translating ATutor*
To encourage broader distribution of translation effort, language can now be translated on any local ATutor installation, or  through the atutor.ca translation site as before. Partial language packs can be downloaded and imported into an ATutor installation, and translation sites can be setup so others can login and contribute. 

Translators should now complete the new language added since the previous release of ATutor in preparation for the final release of ATutor 1.4.3 in the coming weeks. Be sure to reread the ATutor Translator Documentation, and the Language Manager section of the ATutor HowTo 1.4.3 course. Even experienced translators should review the new  documentation for a description of  the upgraded translation system.
