[PD] import vs namespace

While I would think that it would be useful to have tutorials written in
other languages, why not use some translation tools to make them? And then
we can get someone to proof read them in whatever language they are being
translated into, that way these tutorials will all offer the same
information, rather than limiting them to only those that speak that
Does Google have some policy about storing and publishing any translations
they make? I am not a lawyer, but there is nothing on their translation page
as to what you can do with the translated content, and (
http://www.google.com/accounts/TOS?loc=US ) I am not positive if this is the
applicable legalese...

So, it sounds like you can do whatever you want with it, as long as Google
gets to use it as well.

Of Course, that being said, I only speak english, and have rudimentary
skills in a couple other languages, so I could only offer to proof read a
translation to ensure it makes sense, not that it translated correctly.

I will say from what start you have on this Floss stuff is quite nice. If
this sounds like a good idea, I would be more than happy to help out with
these things.

Peace may sound simple—one beautiful word— but it requires everything we
have, every quality, every strength, every dream, every high ideal.
