Re: The next bricks of OpenFoodFacts, the wikipedia of food are up for translation.


 Thank you so much to the Hebrew, British English, German,
Czech, Azerbaijani, Asturian and Uzbek translators for getting their

We're launching today, as part of the Open Data Day, "What's in my Yogurt

We also have an announcement to translate (on a OKFN pad):

Thanks to all for helping us set food free :-)
