Anyone Want Some Danish Reading Material ?

    Any Danish speaking/reading CVMG members out there ? I'm a member of the Nimbus owner's club and they send out a great magazine every few months. The thing is that I can't read a word of it - it is all in Danish ! I was about to bin them, but first thought I'd at least ask if someone wants them, they can either pick them up (I'm in Lucan, Ontario) or have them for the cost of postage.

    Thx !

    Ian, if you have an iPad, tablet or smart phone, 

    you can download the google translate app. You hold

    your device over the text using the camera, and 

    it is magically translated on your screen.

    Yes, I'm aware of that Mathew. I usually just ask for PDF's of the magazine and bulk translate that rather than do anything with the magazine itself. The quality of the translation leaves a lot to be desired, but it sure has improved from where it was a few years ago. I've relied on it a lot, along with a couple of other tools for the work I've done in this section of my web site.

    So far I've managed to document just over 130 manufacturers - it is a process !

    Wow. I had no idea you did that Ian. 
    Yes, the translation of technical terms and

    processes can Sometimes be quite amusing.
