Ashraf, we'd be more than happy to help (just let us know in the
future on any exact needs). We should also have newer versions
of Arabbix within the next month to a month and a half. If you
have a priority list of which documents you'd like translated
first do also let us know (we are a bit short-handed at the moment
so if that is done on your end we'd be more than happy to upload
'em to our CVS for safe-keeping).
In passing, I think this book in Arabic might be of great interest
(its author, Moayyad Al-Sadi, is on arabeyes' "general" mailing-list;
I highly recommend you subscribe to arabeyes' "doc", "general" and
"announce" lists to keep in touch). We'll be discussing with Moayyad
the importation of his book into Arabeyes' CVS soon and converting it
into SGML in order to give potential users a greater option and benefit
in attaining a suitable format).
Hasanen, we miss ya on the developer list ;-)
Do you Yahoo!?
New Yahoo! Photos - easier uploading and sharing.
