Hi Casey,

thank you for answer. I'll send an e-mail to Wikimedia Germany.

Yes, meanwhile I found these pages. But I would suggest that you give a 
link to the landing page on wikimediafoundation.org on the corresponding 
translation page on Meta, e.g. 
messages and so on. As soon as a translation has been published, the 
translator can check the text on the landing page for errors. There 
could be also errors that are not in the translation but e.g. in the 
HTML mark-up of the landing page.

It is a little strange, isn't it? The Sorbian versions are for Sorbian 
people who live in Germany and not for people from a foreign country who 
normally don't understand the Sorbian languages. On the other hand, I 
must confess that all Sorbians speak German. but, nevertheless, they 
have got the right to read texts in their languages.
