The French Wiki is a valuable source of information, and effectively
using Translate from google I have been able to use this resource for
understanding things on animation or multiagent simulation (Kedama). I
have seen another wiki doc with spanish documentation at small-land (but
seems fairly unmaintained) and we're trying to create a Colombian
spanish squeakers community using a wiki. You can see our efforts at:
It's a page about all the pages on Squeak in a bigger wiki
(documentation, personal pages, blog post, etc.).
One of the bad things in the traditional educative structures is that
students never become part of a bigger community, so they just made
things inside the classroom, for not any other purposes that making the
homework. I have found that making them part of a community can give a
lot of sense to the learning process and, at the same time, can solve
many of the documentation problems, because the squeaker community is a
friendly one, and almost always ask soon about the questions not solved
in the docs.
