Sjors,
I am sorry as these are the only ones that I know of that are only English. If I knew of some material in another language, I will send it your way.
The peterson book is no language at all - just images.

BTW - what is your language? You know the SoS site has a drop down list that will convert languages. Have you tried that ?
It works pretty good.

Donnie
