Looks nice. I don't know if it's a safe assumption that there is a plural inflection for nouns just because one of the sentences is translated with a plural, though...Japanese has no plural marking for nouns, but English translations of Japanese texts contain plurals. But you're probably right, since the author was probably mostly familiar with European languages.
