Fair enough, I did some translation work for them, but I will not
translate a press-release!
1. My Irish isn't that good that I can just blabber it off the top of my
head, especially with technical terms.
2. Who the hell who doesn't know about Mandrake is going to read an
Irish version of what they already know?
You might also notice that that he wants me to send him email addresses
of Irish speaking people that might be interested. Sounds a bit fishy
really, but I'll let you make up your own minds.
