Hi Martin,

here are some countries, which take part in the one laptop per child project

(laptop.org) and some which are developing countries in Afrika and Asia with a higher population.

I compared the existing of their language for the wiki and for the DVD-ISO.

MOST DEVELOPED LANGUAGES FOR OPENSUSE
http://i18n.opensuse.org/stats/openSUSE-10.2/toplist.php

MOST USED LANGUAGES BY POPULATION
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bild:Sprachfamilien_der_Welt_(non_Altai).png


THE RESULT IS:
We need Translations in Chinese (already done in iso, wiki done, needs to be published on Homepage) and then in:

- Hindi for India
- Afro-Asiatic for Afrika Nord
- Niger-congo for Afrika Middle
- Arabic for several countries in th Arabic world
- Indonesia
- Pakistan

This means: (CHINESE;) HINDI; AFRO-Africa, ARABIC

I suggest, there is an empty wiki to be set up to be filled in.
Then maybe Novell can additionally employee 3 Persons from India, Afrika and Arabia to do the basic translations for one year. This investment is needed, to get 2000 Million target groups.

Thanks!
