This has to do with the German funding and the requirement, that we
need a German manual soon. So we have translated the manual and Peter
did some work on it and enhanced it with some paragraphs for the
computer science unaware users ;-). It is ewasy for us to do this in
German and later translate it back to English.
As soon as Peter thinks the current German version is stable, we
should start to re-translate it and discuss the content. I hope Mike
can help with that. Doing a verbatim translation might not always be
the best way (e.g. we can use osther examples in Germany tha you can
use in Spain or the U.S.).

Better use "Rotwein" "rott-schwein" may sound a little bit like
"red-pig" (it depends on the pronunciation) :-)

There are so many other things to do; but if there is a volunteer to
translate the chnanges back to english and Peter agrees with thah, she
can start with it.
