And make corrections as I naturally need to do that. Over the time the 
compiler has become less permissive, bugs and limitations have been 
removed, and features have been added.

The new delegate syntax needs to be added. :)

I don't want to do that for two reasons:

1) I really don't think that Google Translate is good enough.

2) I want the book to sound to be from the same person. It would still 
be good otherwise, but it would be a wiki.

Let me take this opportunity to remind people of the following page, 
some of which link to wiki books:
