This article is from the CD-Recordable FAQ, by Andy McFadden (firstname.lastname@example.org) with numerous contributions by others.
There are a few translations available.

At one point there were Dutch, Chinese, and some other Italian and German
translations, but those were discontinued by their authors.
French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish translations can be done
through http://babelfish.altavista.com/translate.dyn. This is an automatic
language translator that is HTML-aware. It only translates the first
part of each document, so it's not entirely helpful if you just want to
read a translation, but it may make doing a full translation much easier.
(The translation is pretty good for an automatic translator, but is still
pretty rough. I don't want to post a translation that is inaccurate
or misleading, so I'm not going to run the FAQ parts through babelfish
If you're interested in translating this FAQ, you are welcome to do so, but
please respect the amount of work that I and others have put into it.
Don't strip out sections, remove author attributions, or hide the revision
date of the document. I don't think the terms in section (0-1) are
terribly restrictive. If, for whatever reason, you can't keep up with
every update of the English version, that's fine; all I ask is that you
include a link to the www.cdrfaq.org version, so that the current
information is easily locateable. (Some commonly updated things, like the
list of recorders in section (5-1), don't need much translation.) If you
don't want to translate a particular section, just leave it in English.
If you want to start with an HTML version, use the pages from
http://www.cdrfaq.org/. If you prefer to do the translation on a
text document, and you're converting to an iso-latin language, the
"faq2html" converter that I use can be found in the "downloads" section
If you do a translation, let me know and I'll put the URL here.
