That would be very fine; please, can you describe also what software from the
ports one must use for "Of course, you may alter the reference card to

the following packages first: docbook-xsl, pdfjam, pdftk, po4a, xmlroff,
poppler-utils, and xsltproc."

I'd be more than happy to make a Spanish and German translation of it.
