Need English translation for "Sphärolithischer Chalcedon von Madagaskar." LAPIS 28 (9), 18-22

Sister Elias Freeman, OSB.Sol June 10, 2012 08:05PM
The only scholarly article on Madagascar orbicular jasper (aka "ocean jasper") is in LAPIS and in German. I have the issue, but I cannot translate the article because of the technical language. Online translation programs are totally confused by the technical terminology, and all I get is gobbledegook. The text itself is not long--lots of photos take up space. Can anyone help me by translating the article? I can send a copy of the article. I don't know if paying someone is allowed, but at the very least I could offer some rough slabs as a trade.

Or--does anyone know of an online translation program that can handle mineralogical German?

I'm willing to try it for you (for free).
I graduated in multilingual (Dutch, English, French and German) translation 10 years ago and have a subscription to Lapis myself.

You can send the article to me at

It might take some time though, depending on the length and difficulty of the text, and the amount of time I can actually spend translating.

Anyway, if you want me to have a go at it, let me know at the above email address.
