 Can you please translate this web page?
   http://www.anticipationsf.ca/English/DealersFAQ

 I've enclosed a copy of the page as a plain text file and a copy of
the text with the Wiki source

 If it's possible, it would be great if you can overwrite the
existing text in the enclosed wiki txt file with the translations so I
don't have to redo the formatting.

 Thanks
  ---Ben
