German is one of over 6,452 languages in which I am not fluent, being unable to read, write or understand it.

I like Bid-O-Matic, but I'm never sure I'm doing exactly the right thing.

English language instructions, FAQ, user manual would be extremely useful.

Do any of the above exist? If not, could someone proficient in English/German create something?

Yes, there is an Englisch help file (BOM manual) in the translation section of the board:

http://www.bid-o-matic.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1857

Please notice, that this is a software made translation of the German help file made by N. Morrison who dont speak any German too. It wasnt checked up until today by a German reader for meaning conflicts with the German origin one - but some day it would. To be honest, its a thankless job to go right through over 100 help sites and compare with the German one.

automatic software translations are normally crap, especially in the context of a technical documentation... without having read the stuff, I assume that this is valid here too.

writing an English translation from scratch is probably easier than comparing and correcting a machine translation.
