> 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.
