Our Hindi L10n of Sugar is actually in pretty good shape, althouhg it
coudl use some more work to be complete.  If it's not localized,
they'd get the English strings, so no worse than the current


It is also easily installed via language pack on XO laptops.

I'd be happy to offer help if you tell me what Sugar version they are
