I think, we would all appreciate a translation into Rhaetoromansh, because size doesn't matter. However, I'm quite surprised that this student is considering a salary when participation at the Wikimedia projects is explicitely voluntary (mentioned in the bylaws). She could use the bylaws translation as a further reference for her future jobs but we won't offer her a payed job.
Maybe we have to make an exception concerning the English translation of our bylaws when they need to be completed in due time to become accepted by the board. Unfortunately, we don't have an expert for juridicial English in our rows. I'd love to translate something into English but this text is too much and probably too difficult. Anyhow, I've already worked on the Italian translation.
