Can you help?
The work done to make translation to French possible makes it easy
to localize for other languages. All that's needed is volunteers who
speak those languages! If you use Crosswords and would like to see it
translated to your language, please email me. I estimate that it
will require between eight and twelve hours of your time.
Spanish, Portugese, Dutch, German, Italian and similar Western
European languages should be easy to support. I'm currently working
on Polish without much success. Until that's solved I don't expect
much luck with other Eastern European languages. But if you're
willing to risk your efforts being wasted I'm happy to try.
