Hi, thanks for all your reply.
I originally planned to translate the manual of the
Though seemly there's translation already [of my
native language], but it's out of dated [and I still
get no reply before I post this message]. Therefore, I
may go with a li'l step as possible(  though I'm not
Peter; ) to translate the manual of version 8.0.
However, I have no idea wheather to submit translated
document because I have no website to hooked on. Is it
possible to submit it to postgresql doc team? or what
should I do?
I appreciate it, sincerely.
