Of course. Already done (I think you said before 'all going forward' or some such grand claim, which you might regret later... in which case, just let me know and I'll remove you as DPL)

Thank you. I will need to check the PD status of this. Obviously, the original story would be fine, but I need to be sure this particular translation is too.

Cheryl, could you please read along with this version:

This is a known PD version, and one we would be able to link to. If there are variations, we would need to ask for changes to match.
