I need to translate 1000 software descriptions from English to Dutch in a free style. Example of English description:
"What one thing has man enjoyed doing since prehistoric times? Give up? People love to watch fire. Psychologists say that watching a fire sets the human mind at rest. 3Planesoft makes it possible to turn your computer into a realistic fireplace with the help of the Fireplace screensaver. We have tried to make it as realistic as possible. Imagine that you are in the ancient English castle on a winter evening. You are sitting in a comfortable chair watching the flames play near the fireplace. The fireplace is faced with fine masonry and has massive metal and iron adornments, which have darkened with age and soot. Tongues of flame embrace the logs and dance like mystical spirits. Fire brightens the dark room and fills it with romantic appeal. You may even feel the heat like that of a real fire. Nothing can bother you now. As you sit by the fireplace, you enjoy those beautiful crackling sounds which everyone loves. Now you may relax and forget about all your problems and worries of the day, and drift off into a dream world. A world where you are peaceful and secure. The fireplace warms your body and comforts your heart. "
