I thought about how I can give back a little of my resources for using
DK a long time. I have some experiences with Typo3 but none with Drupal.

So I'll at this moment only my support in translating if you are going
to build a multilanguage Website. As I see there are at least some german,
french and spanish speaking people on the list. The acceptance of DK could
improve if there are more languages supported.
My help in administrating digikam.org could be a second step, but not for now.

Btw. Could a static site offer multilanguage support?
