Hmm, universities usually have good internet connectivity. Couldn't you 
just host some wiki machine there? Or use some of their machines?

If you don't have many pages, you can do this in a single wiki using 
some naming convention like PageNameEn PageNameDe etc. - not pretty, but

Ah, ok. Law is a bit of a problem sometimes. Too many bored lawyers here.

That was the upper price for big commercial use, I think yours is rather 
educational. :)

Thanks. :)

256MB should be ok if you don't run much else.

Maybe ask them about CPU resources you get and whether they limit it.

If they limit, you won't have a whining provider (or other people on 
that machine), but you will rather get 3GHz/x cpu power, where x is 
unknown. Make x known.

If they don't limit and you do cpu expensive stuff, there might be 
similar trouble as on standard shared hosting.
