German translation update:
I finished the MakeCode part (first 42 pages without pictures) today but my 10 year old proof reader have to check it again. I’ll get his feedback in and my translator colleagues will do the rest.


I’m lagging behind. Spanish translation status:only 30% :frowning:
It’s been a very busy week at my job, but I’ve committed myself to finish the translation this weekend. So, no beers - only translation work.
