Hey polyglots,

We'd like to offer character sheets for The Roach in lots of languages.  If you'd like to translate the text of the sheet for us, we'll gladly credit you on the sheet itself, and you'll have our undying thanks.  I've divided the actual verbiage into ten sections.  What we need are all these words and phrases, translated line by line, in Unicode output (PM for an email address).  If you want to do this in your native language or one in which you are completely fluent, we'll make a sheet and offer it as a free download.  At this point I believe we have German covered.  Our layout dude is also a linguist and will enjoy making these, so don't be shy.  French?  Finnish?  Esperanto?  Mandarin?  Thanks to the brave souls who want to take this on!  Here's the text:
