Though I appreciate your technical feedback on my translation question,
what I'm more interested in at the moment is just the *contents* of the
English page  -- especialy from the point of view of someone who might
end up working with the results of it :) 

It is my hope that local language communities can take a role in helping
users to pose their questions to the OpeNLayers list -- or at least
giving some advice to beginners, when English-only communications aren't
enough. WIth that in mind, does
http://trac.openlayers.org/wiki/GettingHelp/ForeignLanguageSupport seem
like an appropriate way to enocurage people to seek help? Does my
suggestions for how to handle lack of speaking a language make some

Thanks in advance,
