In the beginning of 2017 Google announced improved translation machinery based on deep networks. You can test how far the engine got (as of Oct 2017)... Nowhere close to human translation, but for most part you get the meaning and at least you can find the parts which call for proper translation.
The foreword is already translated by R. Lisker, so I didn't mess with that part.
Few technical points - google translate interface is quirky, so it is difficult to get the whole thing through a single pass, that's why the whole script is cut into approx. 100 page-pieces. Given that the deep nets now take into account the context it would be better to take the whole text uncut by page numbers and headings and pass it one more time. Good source for that would be the TeX compilation referenced above (hint:). Enjoy.
