Hey, Allo!

Nice to meet you Nicolas, and happy to see that you want to participate in our community!

If you want to participate it is actually very easy. You can come by the IRC channel #webplatform on Freenode and participate in any fashion you see fit with your availability and skills.

Regarding internationalization, we are currently focussing on writing content in english and we will eventually encourage contributors who can translate to do so later.

If you want to help, we are about to complete documenting CSS3 and we need people to look around and fix any discrepancies. 

A first step for you could be to stop by the IRC channel whenever you can and ask Julee (our content editor in chief) if you can work on a specific item. If we do not talk a lot on the channel, it doesn't mean we are not active. It only means that we might be not chatting and remember that many of us are not in the same time zone.

Looking forward to contributing with you,

A Québécois de souche,

Thus, I can easily understand (both reading and hearing) english, what could made me a very useful collaborator for your project - more specifically, I can translate english content to french. I got no problem with my french; more than that, I am an excellent writer.

I don't think I am experimented enough to help writing the tech articles, but I understand pretty well the matter (so I won't be lost!).
