Is there an English translation available for Deligne's Cohomologie Etale (Arcata) that is now part of the SGA 4 1/2 ?? Atleast for the first two sections - Grothendieck Topologies and Etale Topology.

Variations of this question get asked periodically: Has xyz, where $xyz\in\{A,C,E,F,G,S\}$, been translated? The answer is usually, "No but mathematical French is not that bad". – Donu Arapura Jul 7 '11 at 19:23
Actually, Deligne's french is particularly nice. – Igor Rivin Jul 8 '11 at 14:41

Much of SGA 4(1/2) is translated in Lei Fu, Étale cohomology theory.
