No idea - the original email looked like a template text that some 
organisation asked its members to forward to as many software companies as 
possible.  I already wrote him, but I didn't know there was already an 
effort going on - perhaps you could write him (her?) again, telling him of 
these efforts.  As you can see the original email was in german, so I guess 
you should write to him in Kurdish, not knowing if he understands english.

Summarised, my email tells him that
 * Debian is a volunteer project
 * he would have to do the translating work "himself"
 * Debian would welcome contributions, and thus his work would become part 
of the official Debian releases.
 * Dzongkha Linux is a very successful example where a translation gets done 
where the commercial software world is/was not interested.
and I also propose that he tells me where he lives, so that somebody could 
meet him face to face, to demonstrate what Debian is etc.
