Hi María Ángela,
Thank you for your interest in contributing to scikit-learn!
Could you detail a bit more what kind of involvement you would need from
the scikit-learn maintainers / team? So far, we've been welcoming
third-party translations and they have a dedicated section on our website
where you'll also find how we relate to them:
Note in particular that we're not able to officially maintain any of these
translations: managing the English one and keeping it up to date is already
a **significant** workload, and we wouldn't have the resources (or language
knowledge) to support other versions. We'd be more than happy to add your
Spanish translation to the list though!
