Hello again,

Firstly, thank you very much for your help with the translations so far.
Our efforts to reach out to as many members of the Wikipedia community as
possible can only be realized because of the time and effort that you have
put in.

We require some assistance in ensuring that the translations are ready for
use in the survey.
- For Danish, German, Spanish, Finnish and Dutch, some of the questions
need to be translated
- For French, Italian, Serbo-Croatian, Chinese Traditional and Chinese
Simplified, surveys are complete but need to be proofread

We are hoping to have translations ready by Monday, 21 November. Once
again, the meta link is at

Thank you for your support.
