Thanks for your quick response to the email below.

Enky - just to reiterate what Sayamindu said, we are all extremely
appreciative of your translation work, it was a great accomplishment
(especially in the short time  you did it)
In fact some of the core team teachers nearly fainted when they saw
it! - etoys has been tough for them to introduce without a local

I hope that any misunderstandings have been cleared up and that we can
get everyone's hard work out to the children of Mongolia!

Thanks again-
