My group is interesting in knowing how other languages
handle the construction Don wrote up; specifically, the *you*
in "This process instructs you on ...."

In our book, the section would begin with a heading like
"How to Detonate a Bomb." We would not include the introduction
"This process instructions you on how to detonate a bomb."

We avoid using "you" whenever possible (reasons too lengthy
to get into here).

When Bob's intro is translated, what happens in the other
languages (Japanese, German, etc.)?

It is the American way to address one another casually as
you. Is this a problem in translations?
