Here is another important point. We have a lot of Sugar and XO
documentation at FLOSS Manuals, with only a few titles in Spanish. We
are organizing a major push to get all of our materials translated.
The manual for Terminal should be out in Spanish soon, and its
translator promises another title ASAP. FM's new booki software has
just gone live, with a new set of translation tools coming on line
quite soon.

Some of our titles would be of interest in Spanish-speaking countries
even apart from Sugar, such as Introduction to the Command Line.

Having materials in Spanish should help in the argument. Of course,
there is a lot of other material, such as Plan CEIBAL's publications.
