Can you help by sending translations and/or recordings? The recordings don't have to be of every phrase, but of enough parts of phrases so that I'll be able to splice them together. Please contact me if you can help.

Also, if you can help with putting the phrases into a database, and/or making a multilingual clock, please let me know.
