Subject: Re: [Hackmeeting] [TRANSLATION] Are translations from the talks/workshops expected?

If I remember well, there was also a proposal to signal it in this way:
* somebody interested in attending a talk AND able to traslate in some other language puts a cardboard with the available language on the speaker table before the talk.
* somebody else interested in attending a talk AND in need for translation sees the carboard and asks for that
* the two sit side by side ecc

i think it has never been put into practice, however
