I dare to agree, although I am not a native speaker. The first version
makes me confused.

I also wonder if it would have been possible to send out this text,
and the "thank you" page, like a week before it was actuallly needed?
If you are serious about wanting it translated, that is a must. If it
does not matter, well then you can launch the pages the minute they
are needed.
