Hi Mimi, and thanks so much for 'carrying the ball'. Now I guess
we need to get their editor involved. First, Die Stimme people
need to 'want' us to do this; and second we need to define
exactly where and how the translation is going to appear.
On the first: maybe Lucca, who has already spoken to them would
continue the dialogue? On the second: I think it would serve both
groups well (Cz-L and BJWU) to publish the English version of Die
Stimme on their respective websites. Of course the final decision
of where and how things would appear would be up to BJWU (they
own the copy).
Other ideas from the group?
