You know... to me... if you could put the text into google translate by page, that would be plenty! I can make out what is being said well enough.
I have thought these books even with a very rough translation would really make it worth buying. I can flip between the basic text and the real book.
For example, I have a 1918 Mauser T-Gewehr book in German. I don't read German. If I had an electronic file of the text, I could plug it into google translate and understand about 98% of what is going on. However without the electronic version, its impossible.
If I could get even this basic translation, I would probably buy one too. My english is good enough to understand the poorly translated German!
