The site Paper Models of Polyhedra first came out on the Internet in May 1998.
I made the site "Paper Models of Polyhedra" as a hobby. I am no polyhedra specialist. The translation of the site in Spanisch and Chinese is I presume not in all case correct. If you know a better or alternative name for a polyhedron on the site (English, Spanish, Chinese or Dutch) please inform me.
If you are prepared to translate the site in to your own language please contact me. The site is based on a database. You only have to translate a list of words (polyhedra names) and a dozen sentences.
Daniela Leone from Bologna made the translation into Italian.
I am looking for people who can help with German and Arabic translations.
I am also looking for people who can help to improve the Spanish and Chinese translations.
Please contact if you want to help me.
