Mailing to support911-at-immuexa.com is the Right Thing To Do in such a case.

I still don't like it either. Yes, I know the saying about the gift horse, but what if what we need is a farm horse rather than a thoroughbred? Suggestions welcome.

Once JIRA works again for you I think it would be best to attach to the relevant tickets.

> The Italian translations of the guides are aligned with Etoys 4 and are posted on EtoysIllinois . I can send them in a zip file too. They were translated by a volunteer; Stephen Trofinoff who works at NCSA/UIUC. All of the tiles and menus are not yet translated into Italian but the guides may be useful as a starting place for teachers.

Some are being translated directly into Etoys and those I will just edit so they all look similar to the original spacing and placements. Other translators are typing text into word documents and I will retype into the guides.They work at their own pace; I will tell you when I have news.

Awesome! Thank you :)
