I see that Macedonian (Македонски) is missing from the languages available 
for translation.
Under what criteria are languages included? How can other ones be added?

Thanks a lot

I wanted to send a quick note to let you know about a new crowd translation 
tool we've developed and are beginning to test this week. It's called Der 
Mundo (www.dermundo.com) and is best described as Babelfish, powered by 
people. You can use it to translate any public url on the web, and to create 
translatable links, such as www.dermundo.com/www.example.com/example

The service is also tightly integrated with social media, so people can 
easily share translation links with their friends. It is currently 
integrated with Facebook for login and link sharing, and we'll be adding 
other options in the near future.

We're looking for testers, and to get the word out in general. So if you'd 
like to help out, you can go to www.dermundo.com and dive in.

Der Mundo was built by the team behind the Worldwide Lexicon, an open source 
human/machine translation platform that has been in operation for about 
three years now. Der Mundo is an open content service. Our aim is to create 
a global translation corpora using user edited translations, and to share 
this data with translation technology researchers so they can build open 
systems comparable to Google Translate (at present most machine translation 
systems are closed systems with closely held translation data).

Thanks for taking time to check it out. If you have feedback, bug reports or 
feature requests, you can email me here.
