Can someone please translate the following:

>
>ANTICIPATION IS CANVENTION 29 WHERE THE CANADIAN AURORA AWARDS WILL 
>BE PRESENTED.
>
>The Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Awards ("the Auroras") have 
>been presented at Canvention almost continually since 1980. 
>Anticipation has won the bid to be Canvention 29 so the Aurora 
>Awards will be presented at Anticipation this year.
>
>Canadian Science-fiction conventions and occasionally other groups 
>bid to be designated the year's "Canadian National Science Fiction 
>Convention," or "Canvention," where the Aurora Awards are presented. 
>The Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Association, an 
>unincorporated literary society, administer the Auroras and 
>Canvention.
>
>Any Canadian resident may nominate and vote for the best Canadian 
>writer, artist or fan.
>
>Since 1991, awards have been presented in 10 categories. There are 6 
>professional awards (3 English and 3 French), 3 fan awards, and the 
>artistic achievement award (open to both pros & fans). The Auroras 
>are closest to the style of the Hugos in the method that they are 
>selected. First there is a nomination phase to select a short list, 
>then a voting phase to pick the winner from that short list. The 
>Australian voting method is used for the voting phase.

Also, I'd like to be able to give the translation to the Aurora Award 
committee, so if whoever translates it would be kind enough to let 
them use it, it would be appreicated, I am sure.

thanks!

Rene
