> And now we're at 30 new translators, 18 of whom made 5812 "edits"!
> They're all amusing. :)

And the total reached some 11k translations. In one round Wikimedia went 
from 0 to about 10 % of total active translators and perhaps 7 % of 
translations. :)

submitters: 	239
new submitted items: 	312,418
new data: 	135,045
changed data: 	20,528

> We're notably missing, among our languages' "top 10": activity for
> Spanish, German, Russian; any translator for French, Portuguese,
> Chinese; and in top 20, Turkish, Swedish, Arabic, Czech, Indonesian,
> Ukrainian, Persian.

If you speak any of these languages or know someone who does: volunteers 
for the next round of CLDR are very welcome, please see instructions at
