Creating a module (even for personal use) without proper license is a 
violation of copyright law, at least in the USA.  Distributing it, even 
if labeled "for personal use" is a very big copyright infringement.  I 
HIGHLY suggest that you work to secure proper copyright license or make 
use of one of the public domain translations that are available.

Please do not ask others to help to make these modules without proper 
rights to do so.
