Thanks to everyone for your interest and help in trying to get the word out. The more violent winds coming to Europe currently particularly seem to underscore the need to raise hazard awareness out there and soon.

In order to avoid duplication of effort I wanted to post the follow summary of translations that should occur once the document has been finalized.

Sylt Rider - German
Gianvi - Italian
Nick - Japanese
Mark Plonk - Dutch
Andres - Spanish
Guga - Portuguese
loeuftok - French

Thanks to everyone again for their help in this. There are still a number of key languages remaining so please toss in your help with the rest of these leaders. I would hope that most of the comments would be in today and will allow the document to be finalized soon.

Thanks!

Hello Andres,

Great! The final version is still pending receipt of comments. I will email it to you once it is finalized.

Good luck on your exams. I can almost remember going through some of those engineering exams, tons of fun! I think I would rather swim in two miles these days.

Dynamics, serious stuff and as I recall one of the "flunk out" courses used to create majors in fields other than engineering. You are a smart fellow and I have no doubt that you will fire through with shining colors. The good news is that it is actually pretty useful.

Outstanding Guga! You might contact Sylt Rider. He is working on the German translation and also went to school in Brazil.

Translations on the way into a total of seven languages and growing! You folks are the best and your help is greatly appreciated!

Howayas,
Me Too an Engineer.. Why so many.. Is it because what we are qualified to do is so Utterly boring we need the thrill of kitesurfing to balance out our lives....

I hate Engineering. But fair play to those who design our kites.

Engineering (electronics)is just somethin I'll fall back on if I ever need a few squids to get by Or when I choose to attatch some sort of LED sign to my kite so i can fly it at night. :grin: (hmm might be a good idea)

adio
