Translating ''this'' wiki into other languages does not make much sense:
 +
* All translated pages need to be kept up-to-date. The people translating will not see every change made.
 +
* A partly (and often quite badly) done translation is no good.
 +
* People who use this wiki are sophisticated users, they are very likely to know English. They will not use localised pages as they do not trust them in matters of being up-to-date.

* Rather create another wiki/information page with more static information for regular mass-market purchaser that do not care about 20 ways to connect their OpenMoko device with their PC but just about one easy one.
