Thanks, Iryna. You make a very good point - I forgot to mention in my
post that we would love to have the declaration translated into as many
languages as possible. The Wikipedia community will be lending a hand.
We are starting to collect some translations here,
http://www.capetowndeclaration.org/translations. However, if you would
be interested in translating it, please let me know.

congratulations Melissa and friends! it's also great that you want this
declaration to be in as many languages as possible - we are ready to
translate it into Ukrainian and Russian and then try to collect
from high profile individuals.
