As you certainly know, Debian GNU/Linux is free software - so you need 
no permission to distribute Debian.  To publicly show your support of 
the Debian volounteer effort, you could, for example, donate some money 
for each sold item, or you could allow people to donate through your 
web site. If you're interested, contact this mailing list again, I'm 
sure the relevant people are listening and will be able to advise you 
on how to set this up.

As to translation: if you do want to do translation work, please 
coordinate with the translation team of Debian and donate your 
translations back to the project, so everybody can benefit from it. As 
you've certainly seen, quite a bit of the Debian web pages, for 
example, has already been translated to your language.
 - generally, you should look at <http://www.debian.org/devel/join/> for 
information on how to help Debian
 - if you want to help translating the Debian web pages, please contact 
the <mailto:debian-www@lists.debian.org> mailing list and read 
 - if you want to help translating other documentation, 
<http://www.debian.org/doc/ddp> (or 
<http://www.debian.org/doc/ddp.zh-tw.html> in chinese) would be a good 
starting point. You may also want to contact the 
<mailto:debian-doc@lists.debian.org> mailing list.
 - Another good starting point might be the chinese translation project 
on <http://alioth.debian.org/projects/chinese/>, there is a mailing 
list on <mailto:chinese-developers@lists.alioth.debian.org>, though it 
doesn't seem to be very active.
 - generally, the people on <mailto:debian-i18n@lists.debian.org> deal 
with translations. Also of interest may be the Chinese Debian user's 
mailing lists, <mailto:debian-chinese-big5@lists.debian.org> and 

A general comment: if you do want to contact Debian at one of the 
addresses mentioned above, please be aware that they are all mailing 
lists. It is considered polite to search the mailing list archive at 
<http://lists.debian.org> for previous discussions of topics you may 
want to bring up. Also, please consider subscribing to the mailing 
lists and expect to read answers you get on the mailing list and not 
just emailed back to you directly. Most of the communication within 
Debian is done on the mailing lists, so if you want to help with 
translations, you should really subscribe to the relevant mailing lists 
so that you will be informed about what's happening in Debian.

With friendly greetings
