Hi Jaffar and All

A couple comments and suggestions:

As far as English edits,

1. To me it would make sense to translate from the final edited English.

2. I would be happy to take a look at the English. My schedule for the next
couple weeks has some kinks, so I would like to look at the text and then
propose a return date for my recommended changes.

3. Once the English edits are done, I would be happy to post to a couple
lists of blind interpreters / translators. I know people on the lists do IT
stuff. Likely over time, some teams of students needing assignments might
sign up just for practice.

Let me know on or offlist if you are interested.
