Ole, 41 of Hiller?d, Denmark, works professionally as a Joomla! solutions provider since 2004. He joined Joomla at the project birth in 2005 and voluntered to help moderate the International forums and became local Danish Translation Coordinator. Was invited to help build the Joomla! Extensions Directory in late 2005, and enjoyed the many hours of serious work and fun at the JED Editorial Team until he retired in early 2008. He joined the Core Team in 2007 when invited to take on the position as Joomla! Translation Coordinator. Since then he has been very pleased to see the strength of a community driven project like joomla!, especially when a selfmanaged Translation Coordination Team succeeded in implimenting a new Translation Policy in autumn 2008.
In a Leading role of Internationalization, Localization and Translation Ole expects to see Joomla! create new subteams and resources so that Joomla! can be available to anyone - nomatter which language they may speak.
