1. Contemplate the possibility ....
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.29.12)

2. Why CIA???
mark ,   TLV   (12.29.12)
if they are a gov contractor maybe they need it for the fbi or something? CIA is more for out of the usa work I thought, rabbis and jews who speak it I dont think are a threat like that. i think its more for agency that operates in usa dea fbi dhs etc etc
3. Have Them Contact The Yiddish Book Center
Tim Upham ,   Tum Tum, WA   (12.29.12)
The best way to track down a Yiddish translator, is through the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, Massachusetts. The center is a collector and reservoir of Yiddish language materials. So it would be the best source for tracking down a Yiddish translator for Yiddish language software and networks.
4. Interesting
