The Wikimedia staff have a rich multi cultural background. Some learned their German, French, Dutch, Hindi on their mother's knee while others learned languages like Greek, Spanish or Hawaiian in school.

Another benefit will be that they will learn to appreciate translatewiki.net and its community even more.
