Thanks for the report! It's important to remind ourselves that
internationalization is important to adoption.

> This paper is based on interviews with 100+ people in Zambia, Turkey,
> and Mongolia over a couple of years. It briefly mentions Tor and Orbot
> in a section on the limitations of existing tools for Internet freedom
> (3.2 and 3.6).

>          In our research, we found that many technically proficient
>          users knew about Tor,  but that new users found the concept
>          confusing and suffered language barriers when attempting to
>          install and use it themselves.
>          When discussing security in Turkey, we attempted to introduce
>          users to Tor. We found that Orbot, an Android application for
>          Tor, was not available in Turkish. This was a barrier to usage
>          as all instructions and user interfaces required explanation
>          and translation.
