Dear Stephane,

I think that it's great that you are putting permaculture into French but
first you should write the Permaculture Institute in Australia
<perminst@peg.org> or to <lisamonckton@compuserve.com> to get permission
from the author Bill Mollison.  Bill is very sensitive about people using
his work without permission because he has had whole books translated and
sold without his knowledge.

I doubt that he will mind if you properly attribute your translation - but
please check it out with him.
