No technical proficiency required! We're just a group of women  
interested positively in Ubuntu, for many and varied reasons. Variety  
is good: it makes for creative and synergistic effort. :)

As a translator, I agree wholeheartedly that communication _about_  
the OS is crucial to distributing it.

helping your language group.

Please feel welcome and valued here, Catharina. :)
