Dear all,

The past weeks have been very exciting for the localization of the W3C  
tools: thanks to the great work of our contributors, we will soon have  
four new translations of the CSS validator available:

- Brazilian-Portuguese, by Mauricio "Maujor" Samy Silva
- Korean, by Sangwhan Moon and the team at Opera Software
   (we are still missing a translation of the users' manual and  
download instructions - any taker?)
- Russian, courtesy of Anatoly Vahramenko with help from Alexey Beshenov
- Swedish, by Olle Olsson and the W3C Swedish office

Many thanks for their wonderful work!

The translations can be checked on the test instance of the CSS  
validator:
http://qa-dev.w3.org:8001/css-validator/

with list of translations done/to be done at:
http://qa-dev.w3.org:8001/css-validator/translations.html

It would be very valuable if native speakers of the now-13 languages  
of the CSS validator could review the translations, and make sure we  
can provide an excellent tool for web designers and developers  
worldwide. Don't hesitate to use the test instance and look for typos  
or small mistakes - the translation table can be useful for that  
purpose too.

In the latter, you will notice that a few of the languages are around  
97-99% complete: they (German, Korean, Italian, Japanese, Dutch,  
Polish and Chinese) are missing the translations for a couple of  
strings. If you have a minute, your help in translating those strings  
would speed up the next release of the validator. Just find the red  
cells in the column for your native language, and click on the cross  
to get a pre-filled mail for translation.

Thank you.
