Great work Giovanni !!! You did a better work than me. Last year, i had 
tried to contact Google, but I had no success.

Is the list of SOC projects close ? I would to propose to work on a 
better multilingual support for Squeak. At the moment, it's difficult to 
translate the Squeak interface, because there is several Squeak image 
(Squeakland, 3.9, OLPC, ...). I think we could improve Yoshiki's work in 
order to have a central repository for the translations (maybe something 
like Rosetta : https://launchpad.net/rosetta) and a more modular 
approach in order to attach messages catalog to packages and not to the 
whole image.
