The second best option for a translation is Karl Friedrich Geldner's
*Der Rig-Veda aus dem Sanskrit ins Deutsche übersetzt* (originally
completed in 1928, but not published until 1951, Harvard Uni. Press;
reprinted 2003), which is available freely on the web at
<http://www.thombar.de/> (the site suggests that the creator, Thomas
Barth, modified Geldner's text in some fashion, but exactly to what
extent is not clear; I assume fairly minimally). In theory this text
perhaps could be used in a future facing-translation edition, though for
me an English language version would be preferable.
