Translating a computer language is a _very_ bad idea.

It has been done before, especially here in France. For a while I think the Ministery of Education was pushing a french translation of Pascal. Now that's something really (twice) useless! Seriously that's totally pointless. First "simplistic" English reads much better than simplistic French, and then when people have to maintain real-life code, written in a real, English-based language, then they are at a real disadvantage.

The English used in computer languages is simple enough that a couple of weeks of training is enough to feel at ease with it. And even the English used in Computer books, once you understand how compound words are built is usually pretty simple. I remember reading technical manuals _way_ before I was able to read even the simplest novel in English.

IMHO you should not waste your time, and above all the time of people who would use "translated" languages.
