Odd that it only seems to apply to the Technical Translator position... 
like, how much stooping and crawling does a translator normally do?

What language would (s)he be translating into in Australia? Are we 
looking forward to seeing Red Hat installer tools in Noongar, Maori, 
Dyirbal and Gooniyandi? Or are there enough Viets, Greeks etc in Oz now 
to provide a target community. Locale for el_AU, anyone? (-: My Greek 
rellies murder the language, e.g. "fossing" built from "fos" (Greek for 
"light") and the English suffix "ing" :-)

Cheers; Leon
