        Hi Rafael,

        Thank you for your answer.

        In order for me to do the translation, I need you to create the languages file, as explained here http://wpmu.org/localize-a-wordpress-plugin-and-make-it-translation-ready/ so I can access it with Po edit program .
        When you’re done just email me at andrewk@webhostinghub.com and I’ll start with translating. And when I’m done I’ll send you back the translated files so that you can add them in the plugin.

        Thank you.

        Andrew Kurtis
