mm43, rather than 'wading back' through the topic, could you give me a link to the latest BAE report, and I'll go back to the site, look at the English and give you my assessment (for what it's worth).
From what I remember, it's definitely better than Google Translate (which BTW has remarkably improved over the last year or so, and is usually adequate for a first look, especially if you have some knowledge of the source language), but not always done by English-mother-tongue translators.
