Hey, for the record, Oleg, I'm with you! It's just that the only language other than English I'm anywhere near proficient in is Ancient Greek -- real useful there. Heaven forfend the Attics should miss out on GNE.

I'm also with you in your skepticism -- I've just finished my third article, and though I submitted the first two to GNE, I'm simply keeping originals of the latest one and its successors, until I see where exactly this whole thing is going. And if the good guys, whoever they be, need my help, I'm here.

Hello everyone! :)

I just finished Russian translation of my article on Esperanto (Zefram,
could you, please include it into your list? Its URL is ).
Russian "Zamenhof" will follow soon. Also there's someone translating it
into Spanish, but I haven't heard from this person for ages, is anybody
willing to do the job? :)
By the way, I'm growing kinda sceptic about the whole project... I think
Nupedia is in desperate need of people (I mean regular staff as well,
not only writers), as it's quite difficult to find lead reviewers for
some articles today, and the feedback is way slow (or null)... Also the
lack of support for non-English articles is killing me. Probably they
consider themselves a multilingual project - its TWO working languages
are British English AND American English - but its's not the way the
_universal_ encyclopedia should be... Oh well, maybe my complaints are
pointless - who needs all these useless languages when we have so many
variants (as PureDoxyk put it) of wonderful English?! Most of the
European national currencies will disappear in a year, how long will it
take for national languages?

Hasta la vista,
