Help translating a Global Notice for Wikimedia hackathon

Hi all.  I'm working with the folks at WMF to help run the Weekend of
Code challenge:

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Weekend_of_Code

Our goal is to run banners on the various WMF sites, in as many
languages as we can, to let hackers all around the world know about
the contest, and to urge them to participate.  (Note: the contest will
be run in English.)  We're hoping to start the contest in a couple of
weeks, so we need the translations quite quickly.

We're looking to get the following banner text translated into as many
languages as possible:

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/WMF_Projects/Weekend_of_Code/Banner_Text

Not exactly sure what the best process is, but I'm delighted to answer
anyone's questions.  Thanks in advance for any help you can give.  :)

Re: Help translating a Global Notice for Wikimedia hackathon

Translations are done on Meta. Three banners seems overkill, btw.
Was this banner discussed somewhere? I don't remember previous general 
banners for any event other than Wikimania (and there are several 
upcoming hackathons).

Sorry about the new-ness of this idea: that's almost certainly my
fault for not being quite sure how to engage folks.  I've been working
with WMF folks directly on this project.

The upcoming hackathons are mostly hackathons in particular places,
AIUI: New Orleans, India, etc.  The goal of this challenge is to
provide opportunities to basically anyone who can take a weekend or
two to hack some code.

It's basically an experiment.  If we run banners for a week and
challenge the entire Wikipedia community to spend a couple of weekends
hacking, what results might we get?  Not sure how well it will work,
but we're certainly going to give it a try.

This is off-topic of the translation request, But I would second the request for more information or discussion links. Would seem like a good topic for Wikitech-l ?
