Students should ideally work on Glucose, Honey and Fructose, and more enthusiastic ones (or the ones whose languages are already well supported) can move on to Etoys and Scratch.

--- problems

1. Pootle account — by default, anonymous users aren't allowed to translate, so you need to register first.

2. Pootle language — in order to to have 'access' to a given project you need to have a language in your user options that is associated to the project

3. Pootle project — you must have the project in your list of projects in your user options in order to be considered as a non-anonymous translator

4. Language+Project rights — although projects are relatively open (suffices to be registered to be able to translate) those rights are specified by the administrator. If all of the above are satisfied please ask your language administrator(s) or ask in the mailing list.
