Allowed languages

There is an English wiki (this wiki) for the English speaking community and a German wiki for the German speaking community. About other languages Christian Ghisler has stated [1]:

I'm sorry but I will not add additional Wikis like the German wiki. Why? Since I'm the hoster, I'm responsible also for the content. Therefore I have to understand the language. Therefore I suggest that if someone wants to write his own Wiki in another language, he should host it himself, but place a link on the English Wiki so people know about it.
Thanks for your understanding!
