What's special about English? I think the rule about go-betweens should be: For every two languages, there should be a go-between between them, or a third language which has a go-between to each of them.
We'll need phrasebooks for the other languages. Inverting a phrasebook is trivial, except for the pronunciation. Writing English pronunciation in French is as difficult as the reverse. Here's a 3-D minimal set: sin, thin, tin, seen, teen, sing, thing. Can you write their sounds in French, or any language other than English, so that they are all distinct?
Also someone will have to translate additions to one language into others. That way, if a Pelonian visits Bertcad and writes about the zoo, the Almonians will know about the zoo, too. -phma 16:08, 19 Dec 2003 (PST)
Romanian Wikitravel Expedition
As Romanian is the most advanced in progress of becoming a foreign-language Wikipedia, there is already a Wikipedia:Romanian Wikitravel Expedition. Hope to see more languages soon! Ronline 04:18, 20 Dec 2003 (PST)
