I imagine MCP can muster people for support in many languages, but
I expect the Ohio office is primarily concerned with English. If we
give them a list of docs which happens to include the European language
editions in need of review, I won't be surprised if they take it in
stride. Asian languages may be more problematic.

Yes, but they are also looking at doing this on a volunteer basis
from editor slacktimes, ie, they are about as committed to schedules
as the rest of us ;)
