Thank you for your translation work :-) What's important is that you find the best tool for your needs.
I have to move my gallery form Piwigo+Drupal to Joomla because I need only one CMS to maintain and Drupal is too poor for gallery while Piwigo (but it isn't a criticism, is only build in this way) lacks news and typical CMS feature. I've found in Joomla a nice in between..
Thank you all for the very interesting product (that I'll hope to use when I'll create only portfolio website) and the excellent community support.
PS: I'll continue to keep up to date the Italian translation of the project because it gives me a lot and I want to give something back.
