In reply to EA2CW:
Mikel, you bring up a very valid point and one which has caused some concern to the MT in recent times. It would be advantageous for much of the SOTA information to be provided in French, German and Spanish (at least) fo the benefit of all participants. The big problem is that most of the MT suffer from the British disease - we lack language skills.
I feel (my personal opinion) that we now need to address this and certainly make the essential information (on all the main SOTA sites) available in a range of languages - we just need volunteers, who can show definite skill in their translation abilities (and have the time), to undertake the task.
Any offers? Perhaps a response off-reflector would be more appropriate, I am happy to coordinate the many offers which will now flood in!
