Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

Extensive googling (and searching here) has yielded nothing, unfortunately.

I knew a language genius once who offered to translate it for me as a favor, but I turned him down because it seemed like too much to ask someone to do for free.

At some point I suppose I'm going to just have to learn french.

No, you need to learn how to read math papers in French, a distinctly different business from learning French. The latter is quite difficult; the former isn't so bad. – Ben Webster Jan 10 '11 at 2:12
