Sandro was asking whether anyone would like to start the Italian
Gabriele and I answered that we can do it, if Eugenia has no time and/or
possibility to go ahead with the translation, but neither he nor I can
finish the translation within December 14th: it is a too short term, the
file is large, and translations need to be revised before they are sent.
Fazit: almost for sure the Italian translation will not be made by
December 14th, but for sure the package will be translated in a very
near future. :)
