If you would like to download the translation and associated pages as PDF files, please click on the links below. 

When viewing the PDFs on your own device, please be aware that the choice of PDF viewer may be important. You can choose between a stand-alone PDF viewer or use a browser which itself has a built-in viewer (and may also allow a different viewer to be used). While any of these options will generally allow an individual PDF file to be viewed successfully, they may not all handle links between files equally well. Adobe Acrobat Reader, for example, tends to ask security questions before allowing links and these may recur on every attempt despite checking a "remember" box. If you run into such problems try another viewer. The free lightweight viewer Sumatra PDF can be recommended.

All the downloaded PDF files should be saved to the same folder in order for the links between them to work properly.

The first link below gives everything in a ZIP file.
