Thank you for posting; wish there was a little more on the "sums" Apr 13, 2004

From the article:

Is it worth it?

Juhani Lonnroth, the Finn who runs the translation service, has done his sums.

"Translation costs less than 2 euros per citizen, so it is less than a cup of coffee or a ticket to the cinema," he says.

"I think it's worth it because it is part of democracy."

(...per citizen per year or what?)
