​Thanks for your help, the reason why I wrote to the list is precisely
because I couldn't submit my editing to the SpanishLanguage page. Unless
the page has been recently unlocked. I'll try again.​

​I also want to know about the non-wiki site, and how can I add or request
changes (see my other email on the topic). If you know about this process
please let me know.​

​I include the raw text of the modified page, to see if someone else have
