Merry Christmas to all. Yesterday, as the German Translation as seen in the subtitles of the correspondent Video was not very exact and style sometimes poor we decided to make an own Translation. Unfortunately the Arabic text had to be transcribed first from the Video Prior to make a Translation because the Arabic text itself was published only late. We then integrated our Translation into the Video as additional subtitles and could present it in the mass to the church community. But it was much work , would have been easier if Arabic text had been published earlier - after all, it should have existed from the beginning, shouldn't it?
