Hello Amir,

Thank you for this great work. I have been enjoying the Yoruba keyboard you
designed for me over over three years ago. I am proud to say that in have
translated over 250 articles from English Wikipedia to Yoruba Wikipedia
using the keyboards and I have trained others on now to use it and they
have also translated over 200 articles to Yoruba Wikipedia. Without, this
keyboard it's usually uninteresting for native speakers to contribute to
Yoruba Wikipedia but that problem has now been mitigated by your work.

Again, thank you so much on behalf of the Yoruba Wikipedia community.

Regards,

Isaac
