Sadly it's not. When LV first started it was thought to be possible and some were even started but it turned out we needed to stick to the present rules.

I've not the language skills to even start , but I've often thought a translation must be very difficult

Legamus accepts translations, but I am not sure we have any Spanish prooflisteners over there... :hmm:

I would recommend having a finished translation before starting recording, though. Translating takes a loooong time (I should know, I studied it :wink: )
