Translated Liner Notes for Soundtracks?

Might as well start at a site noted for translating....

Is there a good source for finding CD liner notes that are translated from Japanese to English? I'm specifically looking for notes for Kenji Kawai's Avalon and the Cowboy Bebop five CD set.

Re: Kaitou Sentai LupinRanger VS Keisatsu Sentai PatRanger Promo (and Trailer!) Released

I'm looking over the full-length trailer and.... are those full-size dart board machines that I see in bars alone the back wall of the casino? And those slot machines are very nicely spaced... must not be a very good casino.

Re: KR Decade 01 released

Why a v2? Well, gather around and I'll tell you some good and bad news. The bad news, Lunagel decided Decade needed more QC, thus crushing my soul and draining me of my vitality.
INCORRECT REASON! It's all Decade's fault. You have to blame everything that goes wrong on Decade.
