Hi Steve,

I was pretty busy with a lot of things but this answer helps me a lot. 
I'm now using this for the translation. I would use mercurial or any 
decentralized control version system, instead of SVN and TeXmacs instead 
of LaTeX for the spanish version (because of its graphical and easy to 
use interface). The Spanish wiki page for the Spanish Translation 
project is this:


I will be posting advances in that place. I would like to make a 
personal project at the same time that I made the translation because, 
from my previous experience I learn mores in this way (not only by 
example, but also driven by personal projects/problems). At this moment 
I want to make a tag cloud in Squeak and know if there is any special 
consideration for using Squeak with touch screens?

Thanks again. Saying this was one of that important things that you have 
not done, but is still important.
