Thank you very much :)

Me too. I wish, there would be a possibility to log in, choose a 
test, and then MozTrap itself but also the tests are in the tester's 
language ... ;)

I have only done a short glance at MozTrap and its documentation, 
but the only possibility I see so far, is to create a new 
environment. But then ... We have the possibility to choose a 
language, architecture and the like, but still we are not able to 
use the tests in our own language ... :(

The Luddites joined up with the Klan,
	And ride out by night
	In a sheeting of white
To lynch all the robots they can.
