:Well, translating the English Wikipedia article is one thing, but I am inclined to delete this article as it stands now because it refers to an individual that we cannot seem to verify the existence of. Although you are, of course, free to spend your time however you wish, I might suggest that there are a lot of other articles one could translate instead that would be of more value.&mdash;[[User:Sen|sen]] <sup>([[User_talk:Sen|ko tavla]])</sup> 22:09, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
 
::From what I can find, the author may exist (at least his science fiction books can be found in Amazon), apparently he was born in Munich but is German-Spanish and writes in Spanish. The Spanish article seems to be the most complete. The date of birth is mostly given as August 14, 1974 not January 14 as claimed here. Different wikipedias give different months, but they all seem to agree on the year and the day. He is also a painter. Some wikipedias (like the Portuguese one) claim he is British, but none claim he is a linguist, as far as I can tell. Mostly they say he was born in Munich. The Interlingua wikipedia, if I understand correctly, says that he wrote his books while living in his first car, but that the books have been so successful that now he is very rich! The inconsistencies in all the articles I'm able to read are pretty impressive. It would be interesting to know what the articles in languages I can't read say.
