I must admit I am aware of this, and I know the (very small) team of
people. A colleague of mine with which I have am working on another
project, is involved in Bulgariazing the Gnome. I know they forced to
finish the translation some time ago, but since we are all very busy
lately, the things have.. hanged a bit in the air. For this  I would
like to send my appologies to Jutta, to who I promissed to do the
translation in BG of the Debian-women, and I haven't sent her anything

you suggest me what I can do, it will be my pleasure to give a hand with

Localising Debian (in particlar) is very important for Bulgaria. SPIP
played enormous role in Bulgarian languate, too, since it is used by
local people mainly. I also enjoy my BG-Debian (partially, partially
Macedonian, the rest - English) :)

Hehe, I am sorry to be silent lately, just never have time to answer.
Knowing that many people also have limited time, I would prefer to not
bother all the group, but no problem with me to discuss the matter
publicly. As you wish. Seulement pas encore en francais ;-)
