The translation fee to me seems a little steep for a 33 page book. But I have in the meantime found a Professor of Foreign Languages at OSU that believes he can translate it with accuracy. And his hourly rate sure adds up to less than $5,000.
The problem with it being a graduate project etc... it is written in the "highest of high German" and it is just not taught any longer. And to make matters worse, there is Swiss thrown in too. But I will let ya know if and when we get the project completed.
