I will put the English translation in italics and a different color so everyone can understand the task. If you create your work on Google, it is easy to make a copy and tweak it the way you would like. I left this copy as an editable copy. The only thing you need to be careful with is that sharing on Google. I set this to share with anyone who has the link which is everyone here. Have fun!
