Hey-y-y-y. I'm in Canada too. Well, I don't know what's been translated, but that's what I'm doing now for Ajuk. For my Independent Enrichment Study at my school I'm going to develop Ajuk as it would be used by a community of speakers in Canada - thus, it would have more English loan words, and such. And part of what I'm going to have are translated newspaper and magazine articles, and such. It's a different style of writing than literature, and as such it could prove to be a good choice for another angle to approach your language from. -- Robert
