Practical Action wants to get its information on appropriate technologies to as many people as possible in as many countries as possible which means that the information should be in as many languages as possible. You can help in this by translating a technical brief or manual.

If you have already translated any of this material for your own work then let us know about it by emailing If we post it on Practical Answers then it will mean others can use it and you will get to use their translations.
