Would an option be to drop the "We are" aspect?
I agree that it looks really nice in English, but it will look & sound
a bit weird in other languages (for example: Russian doesn't have a
verb to be in the present tense...)
What I would suggest is:
Top left: OKFN-Country Name
Bottom right: A chapter of the Open Knowledge Foundation... (Not
repeating but unpacking OKF)
