Hi, Joris,

I was referring to people translating documents in languages like English 
and Dutch for other people to read (I think that's what Marcin meant in 
her query).

I have sent a much longer response to your private address, since it 
wandered so far off topic.

I'm not sure if I'm following.

Are we speaking here about
                 - translation of natural languages? (e.g. Dutch -> 
                 - human or computer translators?

I'm puzzled, really...
