[OT] Seeking assistance with "Natural Language" translation for French;Italian;Russian of a FAQ doc.
I am asking those here who have cultural ownership of any of the
three languages mentioned to please consider assisting in
translating the text I copy below. I am not looking for a
"babelfish" type translation. The finished product needs to be
very clear in conveying "the message" of the document.
Dictionarys and on-line translation services do not do that well.
As you will read the concept I am embarking on implementing is
new for UseNET, it is therefore very important for the best
chance of being of use to UseNET that the FAQ "gets it right".
Myself I have no way of checking the finished product, I am
Australian with LOTE skills for SE Asia and a poor understanding
of "bush French". What is eventually developed I have to trust is
accurate for the ethnic group the translation is intended to
Please consider my request in a kind light. I apologise for any
disruption to normal NG activity.

The Charter for alt.binaries.vj.tester [ABVJT] sets out the
justification for the Groups existence. You are requested to

Before you begin, a few points to consider.
Users of WWW Browsers [ Netscape, Firefox Internet
Explorer - etcetera] expect to be told to find and use a utility
designed for UseNET. Universally known as Newsreaders
there are many developed utilities available.
Forteincs "Agent" is the most widely supported for general
UseNET use. Power users often migrate to using PowerPost
as an archive posting utility.
New users can download Agent V2+ here:
A temporary code to gain full use for testing is:
UserID = ABVJT_Newbie
Code = 8PPD576X-U2JNLBSC-G272R3W6-FF6K3FHJ-C8LN8MKD
[Note] When you have completed the task you set out to do here
it is highly recommended you do one of two things. Send
Forteinc a cheque for the utility registration [or] unload the
New users can download a patched clone of PowerPost by
following the links below. To succeed search for
NNTP YENC-POST 2002 v1.02.
Be sure to read the nF0 file on the page. Do not download
the <plugin.exe> as asked on loading the page.
[Important] Do not download any other version of Powerpost.
many other clones are "broken".
There is an excellent clone of PP known as "SharkPost".
Development is currently suspended so support for it is hard
to find. A request for an upload will generate a post of a
utility that will ease the stress in posting large archives.
Sharkpost is Great!
[Important] Browsers with HTML formatted messages as the
default setting are to be adjusted for "text only" to post into
this NewsGroup. You will be told when a post is submitted in
HTML and asked to correct the error. ABVJT tutors will not
provide support for Browser configurations, consult the support
sites for your Browser.
What is the posting netiquette for ABVJT?
Tutors will supply any assistance within this Group. Those tutors
are skilled in extracting "the real message" from LOTE postings.
When your post [or] response is plainly abusive [or] obtuse you
will not be helped. Anything else is fair play as every post will
be assessed on its merit.There are links to follow in searching
"proper netiquette". All that is asked in ABVJT is you treat
others as *you_would_wish _to_be_treated* in any conversation.
Reap what you sow.
What can be posted here?
ABVJT is a training initiative for Usenet Binary posting,
specifically focused on those having difficulty understand
written instruction from "help files" or Usenet posting
directions that fail in addressing a language barrier.
No one in ABVJT is to "judge" the actual content of your
postings.The samples you post are to comply with only two
1. No binary post will be considered if it exceeds 5MB in total
posted size.The post submitted does not have to have a
"beginning" or a "closure". Part posts can as easily be assessed
as can complete archives.
2. Positively *_NO_* material in any way related to child
pornography. Encrypted files are BANNED.
Posters submitting such material for testing will have their data
immediately forwarded to investigative Authority. No notice will
be issued. No discussion conducted.The criteria for child
pornography includes but is not limited to any computer imagery
or sound bytes of any file format which contain material that is
illegal to possess in developed Western Countries.
There are no other restrictions on binary content for this
version of the FAQ.
What is not to be posted here?
Posts in Text [or] Binary that promote or encourage any and all
"schemes", "scams", "carpetbaggers" - aka - craft material
suppliers, pornography [soft or hard core], "Henny Pennys", "My
grandson has cancer", religious material and or political
material. Posters may use sig.files with links provided
the post carries a delineator and the sig.file is no more than
4 (four) lines. Posters are reminded of the spirit of the Charter
and requested to conduct any acerbic or grievous comments by "one
to one" email. Should the recipient block your email the
discussion is *not* to be bought to ABVJT.
*_One_* post requesting the parties to move the discussion to
another Group is acceptable.
How do I start?
ABVJT is a training initiative for Usenet Binary posting. Your
training starts now. Before posting into the forum get yourself a
"throw-away email address".
Despam the address in this manner:
The two words "null" and " invalid" must be placed exactly as
shown. The rest is up to your imagination when getting your new
address. That format is the standard for this Group. anything
else and you will not be able to be contacted privately should
that be necessary. Posters not using a valid email address will
not be assisted after the initial advice of a first response.
When you have your address set, add the group to the "Newsgroup"
field of your posting utility. Type in a Topic to the Subject
field, "Hello Group"is acceptable.
Type your message in the Body field and submit (send) your post.
If you do not see your post appear in the Group within 24 hours
you may email <firstname.lastname@example.org> for assistance in
configuring your Server connection.
Do *not* send any account details or login information with your
email to rofl.haress.The rest will happen once you are subscribed
and posting into the Group.
The writer trusts you will both enjoy ABVJT and take away what

Organization: Newbie SKOOL 4D Cosmopolitan
Comments: This control message attempts to validate an empty
newsgroup, creating a useful NG
CHARTER: This group is a pipe to education for virjin [sic]
cosmopolitan aspirants insensitive to failure, driven to maintain
binary posting convention in seeking that "freedom to share".
alt.binaries.vj.tester seeks to rationalise the discrepancies
created in variations of Engrish as a communication tool in
describing implementation of the NNTP protocol and associated
RFC's. The discussion of available FAQ volumes in developing, for
the [L]anguage [O]ther [T]han [E]nglish poster, a meaningful
implementation of those conventions together with providing space
to practice the concepts being communicated, this is the prime
focus of alt.binaries.vj.tester.
Technologies that are associated with or complementary to binary
posting are relevant to this group.
To participate in activities any contributor must provide all
syntax in English [or] a best attempt at Engrish. Comprehension
is the responsibility of the Reader/Support Person. Use of
"translation engines" is discouraged.To participate in activities
any contributor *must provide* a valid email address with every
post. WebMail addresses are highly recommended with gMail and
Hotmail being least preferred.Followups to any post made by a
poster undertaking experimental posting should only provide one
or both of these values in communication:
a.) kudos [ congratulations]
b.) clear constructive suggestion/clue/tip/alternative
All posters are to check their twin pistols of
sarcasm and cynicism at the door - no exceptions.
The newsgroup will not be moderated.
Crossposting for any reason is banned.
Discussion of hacks, cracks, warez, serial numbers or the
exchange of enabled copyrighted software is banned. Any freeware
offered must carry full attribution for its origin.

will action an abuse complaint to the Provider/s of *all* parties

vary from the focus of the newsgroup will not be tolerated.
Repeat offenders will have an abuse complaint filed with their
Advertising of services, home pages or links to any commercial
product is banned. Where a helper wishes to direct the newbie to
other resources available, a pointer to another newsgroup where
that information can be found is to be made.
What would be, "nice to have before you start"?
[Note] The applications below work as advertised and you will
be up and running quickly if you use them. Do not request
"patches/cracks" for these utilities in ABVJT. The first runs for
a trial period. The second is a free download.
WinRAR - the best archive tool out there. It can handle RAR,
Zip, ACE and many other formats, and more importantly, it will
unzip multiple files inone mouse click.
QuickPAR - you need this for PAR files.
Some general hints at what it is all about - Binary posting.
In any Binary newsgroup.
You cannot force anyone to post Binaries. If you expect anyone
to "trade" you will often be disappointed. If you got it for
free, give it away.
In any Binary newsgroup.
Binaries is like fishing - patience pays off.
In any Binary newsgroup.
Everything is eventually reposted.
In any Binary newsgroup.
Leech, lurk, learn - it's ok to just download for several months
and you never need to "give back". You do not need to "post
something" to "get something".
In any Binary newsgroup.
Protect your identity at all times. Use a unique posting name
(nym) for each of the Binaries groups you decide to post to. If
you use the same nym everywhere you will find KooKs following you
