Subject: Language Translation Request

There is an international cross-cultural linguistics project to translate

6 lines of nontechnical text into as many languages as possible.

We already have about 75 languages; given the strong interest in this project,

we want to expand what we have.

I've attached a list of commonly used languages we do not yet have.

If you can help us obtain a translation for any of them,

please respond to spiegel[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]

For each language we want to obtain:

- A translation into the language's native script - printed carefully or typed

- A recording of someone saying the text (preferably a native)

- If possible, a transliteration for an English speaker

E-mail contact with translators is most convenient. We can help

by mailing cassetttes and mailers for those without workstations capable

of recording audio.

Thanking you in advance;
