As might relate to legal discussion in other forums... I suppose I could take a cut at it and let others correct my flawed language skills while I learn - that is if this hadn't been done previously.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the most translated document in the world, according to Guinness World Records. The six page document was produced by the United Nations in 1948, and has been translated into over 500 languages and dialects from around the world, ranging from Abkhaz to Zulu. The document outlined for the first time, the fundamental human rights to be universally protected. The premise is that all people, regardless of their race, religion, country of origin, or any other factor, are entitled to those rights enshrined within the document.
