	Don't be afraid. You'll be also assimilated (and translated to Spanish). :-)

	I would vote for 3. What languages will translate Debian-Med talks in the 
near time? Right now these are Deustch and Spanish. I think it's better.

	Please put a remainder in the page source, something like

"If you're translating this page, please drop me a line (tille@debian.org) 
with the text of this slide translated and I'll happily supply you a 
translated image."



PS: Did you see that we reached 1000+ translated pages? ;-)
