I'm still keen to mentor women in internationalization (i18n:  
localization, translation etc.) and could help with documentation.

This would be mostly by email, although I can do Jabber or IRC  
occasionally. I'll swap the Jabber and IRC details if we decide to do  
that at any stage.

Unfortunately, my participation is limited by my illness; we all have  
time-limitations, but mine is unpredictable, apart from being  
progressive, and since my recent "time out" due to being too sick has  
resulted in me not being able to do some things I had offered to do,  
I need to admit to this and make sure people are aware of it. I'll do  
what I can, when I can, but the when may not be reliable. Sorry. :(

I'll be focussing my i18n mentor activities on the Google group i18n- 
mentor, which I created for this purpose, and will invite any woman  
interested in i18n to join it. The online interface contains our  
previous posts, which can be useful. Please contact me if you are  
female and interested in translating free software and/or  
documentation. Since my resources are so limited, my current  
priorities are firmly with female translators and free software. I  
don't think there is any need to apologize for that, since both areas  
need priority and support.

So, if you're interested in translation, please email me. :)

We're currently looking at the translation of the Ubuntu-Women  
website, transferring existing translations from the old wiki, and  
the Linuxchix translation will be coming up a bit later on. That will  
be using the Plone CMS, which should be a useful experience for us.  
CMS translation will be a growing trend, especially for documentation.

I look forward to hearing from you. :)
