Re:language barrier?

my 2c:

1st cent: It seems that Portuguese was the first language to have a translation of the GPL endorsed by FSF (or sort of).

2nd cent: Quite many people in Brazil know some English if you consider those who really count (i.e. those who work with computers). At my work, for instance, there are four others, besides me, who know English at a useable level (and we are only 22). And no, I don't live in Rio or SP, it is a smallish town in SE Minas Gerais. No again, it is not a rich town.
