Thanks to the people who already provided a translation

I now have versions in:

What would be very useful are versions in:
simplified Chinese - I am sure some of this list readers can provide that
kanaka Japanese - I have only Kanji - again I am sure someone can provide
Russian - again, please I know some of us are fluent in Russian, just 2
minutes of your time to do a very simple translation.

we have, the best it is.

Many thanks to the people who contribute to the experiment. As I said, I'll
post the document as free downloads for testing and also post my own
experiments with these documents. If other people have experiment results to
post, I'll be more than happy to post their experimental work.
