All members of the Japanese Armor Society received the new translations today.
Ian Bottomley's article still is a thrilling story, thanks Ian for the contribution.
The second article is about Eastern and Western armors. Super interesting for all serious armor students.
The information shared in this article is priceless. This is a must read!
I hope you enjoy it.

When will the society get into the modern ages and start sending a pdf instead of the current printed format which has to be mailed from Japan?

This happens already for the translations Eric. As for the quarterly magazine, Japan is a very traditional country as you know. But these printed magazines are already collectors-items.

Luc, since the magazine is in Japanese the only use to me would be the images, which when I was getting it were black and white and extremely small, in PDF form the images could be enlarged. There really is no excuse not to have a PDF version, especially since as you say the translation is in PDF form. So we get a "partial" translation and some tiny black and white images. I have enough "collectors items" already...im just saying...

In case you aren't aware, a PDF file in Japanese can be imported into http://translate.google.com, & English chosen as the output language. Of course something is lost, but not as much as you would think.

ken, you are correct, I currently do this for the PDF of a well known armor dealer, not always precise but often very helpful. I use a free PDF editor which allows the text to be saved and the images to be extracted and saved. I copy the saved text and paste it into a translator.
