We have been VERY pleased to work with Translators without Borders on this project and we could not have done it without the outstanding help of their volunteers.

Our Assamese version is already in its second edition thanks to the help of a second team of translators and our Urdu booklet was type set by a team in Pakistan. Thank you to all and many many thanks to John Pettigrew who prepared the language files for our website and to Melwyn Jensen who typeset 17 of the booklets so they can be downloaded.

Please share these booklets far and wide with your networks! 

We would of course love your comments and feedback and help with any mistakes that you spot in the translations.
