This could be a good example to illustrate the need for an "at sight" IAL
for purposes of cutting down on excess need for multiple translations.
Esperantists, French, Spanish, German, English, etc. and more can read th=
text and learn Lojban.
Lojban es dessinat esser usat de popules in communication con li un e li
altri, e possibil in li futuri con computeres.
Lojban es dessinat esser neutral de cultur.
Li grammatica de Lojban es basat sur li principie de logic.
Lojban have un grammatica unambigu.
Lojban have... etc. etc.
Theoretically, one translation would be easier to do than a half dozen or
