Translators, The 2010 Fundraiser needs your help!

This year's fundraiser is to be a collaborative and a global effort. 
Your translation help will ensure that we communicate our core message 
to as many people as possible. This will help us to reach out to every 
single person on the planet, expanding  free access to the sum of all 
human knowledge.

Like past fundraisers, we rely heavily on the team of translators to 
translate the banners, forms, information pages, and more into the 
languages we support. Some of the messages may not translate well, or 
appeal to every audience, so when translating you are free to use the 
words that fit your language and culture best or have an effect that is 
similar to the one expressed in English. If there's no wording that will 
work, please let me know.

We need your help for the following:

*_On Meta:
** The FAQ and Core Messages are a good place to start:



** To see what banners and designs look like see:



(Note, these designs may change)

** Please annotate your translations with *** if you feel your 
contribution needs work or if you feel there is another that should not 
be used.

*_At Translatewiki.net <http://Translatewiki.net>_*

** Help us by localizing the payflowpro gateway and the donate interface:



Our goals this year are aggressive, but achievable.  The work that you 
do on translation will help us realize the potential of this year's 
fundraiser. We want to involve all the communities because we raise 
funds to realize our shared aspirations.

Thank you in advance for your efforts. In this way you contribute to the 
sustainability and expansion of this remarkable resource of human knowledge.
