Hi all,
Once again I will send out a call for help to those of you who are bilingual in English and Spanish, or have a good working knowledge of Spanish.  Even though I try to go through a section or so every other day (or so), you can see this "so-so" approach still leaves much to be translated.  James has gone through and pasted in machine translations of everything in the book.  Even if you don't know much Spanish you can change pitón to Python and actividades to Actividades (Spanish uses fewer capitals than English, but these are proper nouns and we are keeping the capitals).  Also pitón is a literal translation and refers to a snake, not a programming language.  Other programming terms are retained in their English versions with or without capitals as they are in English because that is what programmers everywhere know them as!
So... you just had your Spanish lesson for today!  Now come join in the fun translating James's very nice and useful FLOSS manual here:
Caryl (Carolina)
P.S. If you do read a little Spanish, you might enjoy looking at this thread from the Uruguay list.  One of the teachers there is having some amazing results with young programmers in his classes. It might even be worth running through a translater.
