Ehsan,

There seem to be a number of issues that people have pointed out with this
dataset already and your responses have not addressed them. Before we can
even discuss any of the merits of the data, we need to address some very
basic issues- such as:

1. Is this data autogenerated from another sources? Ie is this just a
translation/transliteration? If so, then as Frederik points out, it's of
limited value to the project.

2. If it's not that, we need to know the source of the data and the terms
of the distribution and use of that data in an authoritative (written) form.

- Serge
