Translations of the Government 2.0 Taskforce

Having recently congratulated John Quiggin on his many translations of his Zombie book, I was informed by a Korean today that the Government 2.0 Taskforce was translated into Korean here. Which, since it was written with a wider set of circumstances than just those appertaining to Australia in mind, made me particularly pleased. I wonder if it made its way into any other languages (though I guess it is easier in the age of Google Translate. I’m unaware whether the Korean Translation is simply machine translated. I’m heading to Korea soon, so I’ll try to find out.

It’s unlikely that you could sell a version that is machine translated (or even understand it) since even the best translation algorithms are still pretty poor (and very complicated), even with languages that are quite similar.
