You are always welcome to add a translation. I will support you. (Here is why.) Your name will be on all title pages. For a full volume, you will be listed as Gold Sponsor.

Many readers want translations. If you want to help in translating parts of the text into your language, read about details on how to do it below and then let me know. You will have many readers. Because our non-profit has no funds to pay for translations in advance, we will organize royalties for the translator in each paper book sale. (But the amounts will be low.)

Translating is fun. A chapter or two are completely sufficient and are very welcome! You do not need to translate a whole volume. And you will learn about physics while doing so. In exchange, I will explain everything that is unclear. But translation is also work - even if Google Translate is used as helping tool. If you have the time for translating, please get in touch. In exchange, I will help you and motivate you wherever I can.

You will get recognition. Your name will be (since 2017) on the external title page (if you translated the whole volume) and on the internal title pages of the text, and of course I will thank you in the text and on the website for your help. And if you have suggestions for improvement, I will do what I can to add them into the English text.
