    This is an important article and could use a good translation. Any takers?

  • racunista says:

    You must have understood it, if you think it is important – why not volunteer to translate it?

    • ed says:

      I used a Babylon online translator to wade through it, and I think I got the gist of it and its more important points, but the raw product was just that, raw, and if I were to paraphrase from that I could end up butchering it. So, I would respectfully defer to someone with good translating skills.

        thanks for your interest. I have noe time for a transaltion but you can ask me any question about it in english if you want. All best, Andreas
