A Public Project

I'd like to organise a copyleft translation of Kant's essay What is Enlightenment, for publication on the internet, and possibly in print.

I'd do it myself, but many hands make light work, and my German is pretty much non-existent. So does anyone feel like helping?

The essay itself is non-technical, and short (about 20 pages); it is incredibly important as a document, I think, and it could help make it more difficult for people (no names) to make inappropriate, even fatuous, use of the concept of Enlightenment.
