JRMES English/German?
#1
Just out of sheer curiosity, why are some chapters of the JRMES series written in German? Are they just published the way they're submitted? Dag-nabbitt...I really want to read the chapter by Christian Geyer (JRMES #9) about the pila.<br>

Well it's standard academic practice to publish papers in one of the common languages and most people feel they can best express themselves in a familiar tongue. I have long aimed to have summaries of each paper in each of, say, English/German/French/Spanish, on the website but it's yet another thing to find time for that doesn't bring in the beans, so has to receive appropriate rankings in the crowded Bishop schedule of stuff-to-do.<br>

C. S., something special you want to know from the Geyer (means "vulture"!) essay? Thought about translating it - but then looked it up and it's waaay too long for my leisure time...<br>

...or do you want to try your German? Then you'll like this better:<br>
C. S., möchtest Du etwas bestimmtes aus dem Aufsatz von Geyer (...) wissen? Ich hatte über eine Übersetzung nachgedacht - aber dann habe ich den Artikel nachgeschlagen und er hat sich als viiiel zu lang für meine Menge an Freizeit herausgestellt...<br>

Gut Dank für das Versuchen, Freund. Ich kann es einmal übersetzen, wenn ich einige Ersatzzeit habe.<br>
