Free beer deal

Hi,

You need Belgian beer, and I need your translation for FOSDEM. Looks like a win-win situation to me...

The deal:

You translate me the 1 page FOSDEM press release into
your own European language by 2009/01/11 20.00 Brussels time and
attach it here.

You get a free Belgian beer of your choice at the Friday evening
pre-Fosdem Beer event.

Questions? Please mail mark@markvdb.be.

UPDATE:
Belarussian, Dutch, English, Estonian, French, German, Greek, Hungarian*, Italian, Latvian, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Spanish and Swedish translations now available.

* coming up
P.S. Yes, Arab, Basque, Catalan, Rhaetoroman, Kurdish and Turkish qualify.

P.P.S. Yes, it's free-as-in-beer free beer. If I'm lucky, I might be able to get you some both free-as-in-freedom and free-as-in-beer beer. Or am I complicating things a bit here?

It's past the deadline and I won't attend this year's Fosdem but if they have Skopsko beer at the Delirium Cafe you can drink one in my honor instead of a Belgium one. :)

Hi Mark,
I'm sorry to say that, but the polish translation is not really good, I'd say it misses quiality required for press release :(
In the future I'd suggest contacting translation teams.
