I added the "Si usted entiende español" section as a test to: (1) invite those who understand Spanish to visit the Spanish wiki -which is still in a very basic stage-, (2) recruit contributors for the Spanish wiki and (3) start linking/syncing of contents between the English and Spanish wiki for the Spanish-Speaking country pages. According to the results, other languages might think in a similar approach. (GomezFJ)


The little text box to the left that has a link to expert help in Mexico research has a link that goes nowhere. The results page has zero results for Mexico. Should this be removed or is there something else available to link to?

The link to the learning center's page for Latin American Research added by Carol does not have any results on it.  There is a learning center help page in Spanish on the Wiki.
