The Editor is trying to increase the number of papers that are submitted by people who do not have English as their first language.
The Editor is also trying to increase interest in the Journal from people whose level of English is not that high. One of the initiatives that the Editor is introducing is the possibility for authors to submit a translated version of their paper's abstract into their own language. The translated abstract would appear on-line but not in the printed version of the paper.
The instructions for authors can be found here.
