  That sounds great!

  There is a fairly well translated site in Japanese with original
content plus Japanese oriented news:


I'm not at the position of giving the permission, but there is a
preceding example, so it should be ok.

  Squeak is "multilingualized" and there are successfully deployed
versions for Japanese and Korean.  (I happen to be the person who did
it.)  Supporting Chinese is straightforward but I haven't get around
doing it.  (Even there have been a few requests in the past from
Chinese speaking people already.  Sorry for my laziness.)

  Looks good (though I can't really tell^^;)  Keep up with good work!
