Hello Geoff,

by incident that supplements the message I wrote a few minutes ago: As a
writer I do up to 5 pages a day.

Here I am:

I write this message from my BBS and this BBS is sponsored by BDUe, the
biggest German society for translators and interpreters. There are some 200
translators on my BBS and several of them have participated in software
localization. Please send my a messagge describing what you need and I will
forward it.

The other way: I have been quite active in our society for technical
communicators here in Germany since 1983. I know lots of people in this field,
too. Perhaps I can help you personally :-)

In Germany:

Technical communicators:

tekom e.V.
Markelstr. 34
D-70193 Stuttgart
tek-b -dot- beutte -at- geod -dot- geonet -dot- de

Here it is a bit more complicated as BDUe is comprised ot 17 entities: 16 for
all of our German states and one federal body. The federal body is at:

Ruedigerstr. 79a
D-53179 Bonn
Fax +49 228 344290

But they can hardly help you. Alternatively you can ask my co-sysop here who
supervises all the translator stuff on my BBS:
Richard -dot- Schneider -at- twh -dot- msn -dot- sub -dot- org
