The plugin has been translated to Spanish (es_ES - thanks to Andrew Curtis) and Farsi (fa_IR - thanks to Saeed Adel Mehraban).
I also run Do It With WordPress, which has an array of tutorials for managing, modifying and maintaining your WordPress sites, as well as The WP Butler, a service for keeping your site maintained, backed up, updated and secure.
