Well, for example the already translated wiki pages should be reachable/copied 
to the static page wiki. Having a menu option for these languages could be a 
solution too.

Thanks a lot, Vid, great work.

Question: are we going to have both wikis ? Seems a bit odd me...

I suggest we decide to either copy all existing wiki pages to the wiki of 
ubuntu-women.org and continue to work on the new wiki or somebody volunteers 
to keep _both_ wikis up-to-date, which is time-intensive...

I volunteer for German and/or French translations as both are my A 
languages :-) But of course, all translations should be proofread so it would 
be nice to ask for translations/proofreadings in Rosetta.

So do I. Why not just linking the menu item to the existing wiki ?

Another question: the website header states: <!DOCTYPE HTML 
PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

which seems not so optimal to me. Usually, to be sure to make a website 
readable by _all_ browsers, one should use 'transitional' instead 
of 'strict'. But maybe I'm old fashioned and someone can tell better, 
especially from the Acessibility team.
@Henrik, what do you say ?

Greets, Myriam
