Notice: Hi there,

I have just returned from Papua New Guinea after recording video interviews with local Papuans on the issues of mining. I have a lot of interviews that were done in Tok Pisin/Pidgin, and I would like to put some of these interviews online, with captioning.

If anyone can help me with translating the Tok Pisin/Pidgin, that would be great!
