I do proudly announce, that the Esperanto translation is complete! [well, it's completed since 21.12 but now I have the forums access].

"what the hell is esperanto?", you may wonder. Here is the answer:
Esperanto is the most widely spoken constructed international auxiliary language. [wiki] This means, that it is the most popular non-natural language. L. L. Zamenhof developed it in 1887, his first book about esperanto was "Unua Libro" (published by Z. as "Doktoro Esperanto").
Although no country has adopted the language officially, it has enjoyed continuous usage by a community estimated at between 100,000 and 2 million speakers for over a century. By most estimates, there are approximately a thousand native speakers.

Have fun :)
