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

Our Assamese version is already in its second edition thanks to a second team of translators. Our Urdu booklet was typeset 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.
