Hello everyone,
here in Italy I worked with the ILDP (Italian Linux Documentation
Project) that aims to translate documentation about GNU/Linux from
TLDP (The Linux Documentation Project) from english to italian.
First of all somebody translate the document, then someone else check
the translation. I understand that our translation are not W3C
"official" work, but this way, we could give a kind of "quality check"
on documents.

For Pavel:
I'll take time to point some problems of the translation. Most of all,
the problem is that reading is not fluent; there are some lexical
problems.
If you prefer, and if Helen thinks this is a good way to go ahead, I
can check the translation, maybe coordinated with Pasquale.

Hope to be useful.

Simone
