Sprechen Sie Deutsch?

Do you speak German? Or Russian? I’ve got material about the Saxon army in each of these languages that I’d like to get translated into English.
The German material is a couple of chapters of Hottenroth’s 1910 book Geschichte der sächsischen Fahnen und Standarten that regular BfK correspondent Andrew Brentall sent to me a while ago but I simply haven’t had time to work through it all myself. The Russian material is a few A4 pages from a magazine.
Now, I could, just about, manage the German myself but it would take a lot of effort and be a deep test of my memory of the language skills I learnt at school a very long time ago. And as for the Russian – well, I’ve no chance with that!
So if anybody is interested in the Saxon army and fancies a challenge, let me know. It’s not a huge amount of material and I’d be extremely grateful.
