I’ve had my articles read by people from around 100 countries or so, but the limitation of course is English only … so I would like to talk to anyone who would be willing to help translate the pages & articles into other languages, and anyone who understands how to best offer multiple languages via hosting (or failing that, can help redevelop the site on its own server using the full installation of WordPress).
