Help us with translating our handbook
********************************************
We are looking for translators for translating our handbook [9]
(online HTML format [10] great lookingPDF format[11]).
For some unknown reason it seems to be very hard to find people who
like to help with the Krusader handbook in general. Several people
have already offered help and than they seem to dissapear [9] so, you
have been warned ;-) , so all help is very appriciated.
