Thanks, I do hope that one day SW can be among the
translations at http://lingvo.org/2/3 but there is no
rush.  I guess we're all very busy.

That's great (and posting on your website would be
perfect).  The text is not too long nor too difficult.
 International Mother Language Day is the 21st of this
month, but it would be best if I had any translations
one or two weeks before then.

Thanks again,

PS.  Any other offers?  LSF?  etc?
