Hi jam - for us here in Germany I think we could really use a lot of the material Acquia provided, but it's not really useful until it's translated. I guess this is true for lots of other European countries.

I just realized what this Hello Drupal thing is and it looks like a great thing that local user groups could do to attract more people to use Drupal.

What we need most in Germany is people who can build Drupal sites, so (free) training courses within a user group setting would help. A lot of sites in Germany are built with TYPO3 and I've talked to quite a few clients who would really like to use Drupal but end up using TYPO3 only because there are plenty of developers for it.

Some of the Acquia white papers would be very useful to have in German, especially for the bigger clients. So maybe you could think about putting the open documents (white papers and training materials) up for translating, I'm sure the community will help out, we definitely will for the German part.
