geojquery will be english only, except someone wants to translate it.
The reason why the content is originally available in German and Spanish
as well is the FOSSGIS. At the German conference a huge number of people
met, so it made sense to publish it in German as well. There was also
Jan, who wanted to get the idea of geojquery to the SIG Libre conference
in Spain (which was a few days after the FOSSGIS), therefore he
translated it within minutes into Spanish.
