    Like I wrote in my PM, wait until you get the book. Then we can get you the translation. I can't provide a translation to anyone until they own the book.

    Mike,
    I just received a copy of "Die Zwergcichliden Sudamerakas" from Germany. How do I go about obtaining a translation?

    Let me know if you have MS Word and if it uses the old .doc or later .docx. I'll email you a translation.

    If you would please forward me a copy too. Trying to do it myself with a dictionary is not working. Probably because I know no German.

    Hi.Mike
    I would like to have 3 sets of no4 series, and shipping to Taiwan.
    The shop has books in stock?

    Ap. Wu, I am sorry but this is a 10 year old post. I no longer sell books. The publisher (Ulmer Verlag) only offers volume 3. Volumes 1 & 2 appear to be 'out of print'. I will provide an English translation (electronic copy) of Volume 2 and the dwarf cichlids found in Volume 3 to those who can prove that they have a copy of these books.

    Hi Mike,

    One more on this topic. In the section of your 10 year old post shown below you indicated that you can provide the English translation of Cichlids of the Americas - Apistogramma & Co if you own either (1) or (3).

    (1) Die Buntbarsche Amerikas - Apistogramma & Co. (in German): US$31.00
    (This is now ½ its original price!)

    (2) Cichlids of the Americas - Apistogramma & Co. (English Translation of above book): US$25.00
    To buy this book, you must prove to me that you own either (1) or (3).

    (3) South American Dwarf Cichlids (Datz Special Publication in German & English): US$31.00

    I just got my hard copy of the DATZ Sudamerikanische Zwergcichliden/South American Dwarf Cichlids yesterday. If that allows you to sell me an electronic copy of the English translation of (2) then I'd be very interested.

    Sorry, but you have to own the original book. Due to copyright laws I can't sell what isn't mine. I am actually offering a translation service.

    Thanks Mike. It sounded too good to be true. I'll buy the German copy when I'm back in Europe next Spring. My German is probably still good enough to read it.
