We are very interested in doing Italian for Visor, but now it is not in our list.
Do you know any company in Italy that could order from us such a localization project?
It may be Italian Visor device reseller, for example...

Whats with Latvian?

Why they prefere these languages? People in Latvia and Lithuania also are using PDAs. We need localization!
