Hello everyone,

I'm not a native English speaker but it has been my second language from an early age.  I'd be more than happy to translate some of your articles.  My only concern is that I currently have very little time to do so.  I could work on one document at a time and let you decide which one you'd like to prioritize.  Feel free to communicate with me directly.

> and klutzy, and words don't always come easily.
> Anyway: if someone feels up to the task, contact me on this list, I'll

> Cheers,
