    I work from the original receipt, and do not bother with a "redaction"
or translation.

It depends on whether I'm experimenting or putting together a formal 
presentation of my recipe adaption.

I want a copy of the original recipe, transcription or facsimile.  That will

be the final arbiter for any disputed points.  Next I want a translation, if

necessary.  From this, I may produce an ingredient list and experiment on 
quantities or just play around from the translation.  If I'm playing, I may 
leave the recipe in this state.  If I am preparing it for publication, my 
adaptation of the recipe will be put in a modern format with a transcription

of the original and any translation.
