Hi Masayuki, your note arrives at the most opportune time. The School of
Data team is meeting in Berlin as part of OKFest and School of Data Summer
Camp. We will be discussing and strategizing on topics like
localization/translation, School of Data instances and more. We want to
plan carefully and respectfully.  The plan post-event is to share that back
with this list and via the community channels.

We would be honoured to know that you used these courses.   Regarding
translating the website and modules, Michael and I are working on a plan
for this next week, which we will then field test with colleagues and
network folks.
I will add your request to the important list and followup. Our goal is to
do these activities with full community collaboration.

Thank you again for your interest and enthusiasm.
