My first attempt at such a translation.  Tsayah is a work in progress.
This was difficult and I'm sure there are still some errors and problems
to be ironed out.

>English version: >Long ago, in a quiet village in France, there lived a miller. That miller >had three sons and two daughters. The oldest son wanted to become a knight >one day, but his father had no money to buy a horse. The middle son wanted >to become a monk, but the nearest monastery had no room for him. The >youngest son didn't know what he wanted to do. We don't know what the >daughters wanted, because stories in those days didn't talk about such >things.
