First, congratulations to all of you for your work, I think Telaen is great and it. So don't become downhearted.
I'm spanish and I can translate telaen into this beautifull language. I must say that I don't know neither php, nor any programing language, but in a text file I can do it. Only, tell me and give me a file in English to translate.
I know somebody has told it before, but a forum in telaen.org will give some live to the project. Meanwhile, create a link to sourceforge's forum.
