I think that if we are to be realistic, then the use of English has been
established for a long time as a "de facto" universal means of communicaton!
So, I don't honestly believe that the use of any other language would
work.....It just could not serve our main purpose!

Just one more thought:
I vote strongly in favour of leaving it to the local communities to
decide who- among their volunteers- is the best suited person for the job!
Apart from his/her fluency in English, let us not forget that behind
him/her stands the power of the local community!
Therefore, even if there should be minor translation problems, just by
using the Community's good will and coo, everything will be smoothed out

means a precondition for anyone to contribute.

Hope we don't fight any more on what language as long as there is someone in
the team down there to share with rest of the global teams regarding their
