Hi, yes, the point share exchange site and loadstone main page itself can be 
multilingual. It would be great. I sometimes translating the loadstone 
manual into turkish and thinking to publish them in my own site. But we can 
also have a
site for turkish loadstone users. Unfortunately at the moment turkish blind 
community did not use loadstone much. Only myself and a few other people 
I myself use loadstone for my major gps application, nokia maps and other 
apps are used only to get data for loadstone.
Even I have a licence for wfa, It seems unstable at the moment, and people 
always wonder when vodafone will shut the source website for its map data.
I do not have website design info or programming, But i can do my best for 
loadstone to reach other turkish blind people by translating and recording 
some podcasts etc.
