If you need assistance with translation to English at any time you can
visit the IRC channel to ask for immediate assistance.

I had noticed that we both work on the wiki at nearly the same times
(~22:00 GMT-4 and later). I am always in the IRC when editing the document,
so we can work together at when I am available to synchronize the copies. I
only know english, but between your rough translation and google's rough
translation only the grammar should need special attention.

I may be a little tied up tongiht between moving the slackbook:install page
and updating the slackbook, but whenever I am available I will do my best
to assist.
