A good point Baudoin. I'm hoping it would be OK to start with
transcriptions of the summary minutes only - or do you believe that
the transcripts are necessary too?
(it is a question of cost really - our current translators cost
US$0.22/word. It would be very expensive to translate the transcripts
of a multi-hour meeting).
