Wikipedia page on St. Andrew's Episcopal Church (Episcopal Eclesie de St. Andrew) in Brewster, New York translated into Occidental

Friday, August 15, 2008

The church occupies half its 20,000-square-foot (1,900 m²) corner lot, with one outbuilding. It takes a cruciform shape, with granite-faced stone walls two feet (50 cm) thick. The tower and nave are supported by buttresses. The former is faced with an E. Howard & Co. clock over the heavy (up to 650 pounds (290 kg)[2]), detailed red wooden double doors at the entrance; the latter has a cross-gabled roof surfaced in slate. The battlemented belfry shelters a 1,576-pound (715 kg) bell.

A few weeks ago I did a lot of these translations of pages that were going up on the Main Page in the did you know...? section, but then later on the timing either just wasn't right or the upcoming articles were boring (some species of bug or something), and then the war broke out in South Ossetia and that's been all over the news. Today though I did a short translation of a page on a church in New York State that will be going up on the Main Page soon, in an attempt to bring some attention to international auxiliary languages. Here it is:

St. Andrew's Episcopal Church is located at the corner of Prospect and Michael Neuner streets in Brewster, New York, United States. The congregation dates, informally, to 1872; it was formally accepted into the Episcopal Church in the United States of America ten years later. The church building itself was finished in 1903. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.

It is the third church built on the site. Seth Howes, a wealthy congregant, offered to pay for its construction after its predecessor burned down within months of its own construction. He hired architects Edward Pearce Casey and Arthur Durant Sneden to design a church that recalled the English country churches that were among the first to use the Gothic Revival architectural style.

Seth Howes, un rich membre del congregation, ofertat a payar por su construction posque su antecessor incendiat a terre intra mensus de su construction.
