Dear Michael, dear all,

  first of all, happy new year :-)

Michael, I proof-read your extensions to the German article – great that you 
extended it to the same level as the English article!

By “harder”, do you mean that it will be hard to find authors who speak that 
language? I don't think so – how about our friends from Spain, the 
Netherlands, etc.? (BTW, it doesn't seem that Olga is the author of the 
Italian article.)

Otherwise, it should be easy to place a well-written article (e.g. a 
translation from de or en) in any Wikipedia. No Wikipedia project should 
reject it due to irrelevance.

But I think your finding “Inhaltslexikon” is fine.

;-) – Yes, I agree, that's an important issue.
