thank you for your cooperation always,
also offering help on management sphere.

It is a nice idea to have Board resolution translations as French
editors do, and a good attempt to make a request as [[m:Translation
requests/Resolution:Board expansion]]. However regretfully I closed
this request just before unless it confuses the order of priorities.
It is properly placed on [[m:Translation requests]] but on the
automatically creating list on [[m:Translations]], it is not
completely unclear. Also it is very visible being linked from
Going-on, and many language editors tackled it besides requests in
much higher priority and in urgent (yes, some translation has its
deadline in today or tomorrow). In my opinion outdated information is
in higher priority to be uploaded thus translated than significant but
not wrongly represented information. Also the information the Board
designated us Transcom requests in the highest priorities. And now we
have multiple requests related to the Foundation - so sort of
priorities is necessary, in responsible of ours, Transcom.

We need
- "Give the gift of knowledge" translation
- information about the new Board (Board of Trustees; only Japanese
version mentions the new construction besides the English original.)
- newly revised [[About Wikimedia]]

As for the latter two, before fundraising, I am planning to turn the
outdated versions into reedirect. We are better to avoid misleading
the visitors in feeding them wrong, outdated information. And during
the fundraising the number of visitors are dramatically increasing in
past experiences.

So I decided to close this translation request for a while, until
things in urgent is fixed and uploaded to the foundation website.
Hopefully we will be able to reopen soon with your translators' always
