Why translate OghmaNano?

The more people who understand the device physics of solar cells, the better our chance of developing light harvesting devices to supply our energy needs. This is the reason I make OghmaNano available. A key part of fulfilling this aim is translating OghmaNano into languages other than English, because many good scientists do not speak English, but would benefit from access to high quality solar cell simulation software. Please help the development of better solar cells, by joining the OghmaNano translation project and translating OghmaNano into your language!
