History of Nagano Olympics

The original ones were selected from the articles related to Olympics, appeared in our newspapers, which are all written in Japanese. A new software system called Internet New Esperanto (INE) was used to translate them into English and Chinese. This system is not perfect yet, so that we must excuse for incompleteness of the translation.
