easy-Speak in a language other than English

We expect to offer easy-Speak in several languages other then English during 2014.

Italian will be first and has been used as a test of the translation tools.
There has also been a good proportion of the translation work completed for German, Polish and French.
Spanish, Dutch, Swedish and Lithuanian are also on the possibles list.
We are considering the possibilities for multi-byte character sets such as Chinese, Japanese.

Many thanks to Kit Barritt in Qatar and Francesco Fidele in Italy for giving their time so generously to this project.
