Hello, The United Nations has published the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 463 different languages and dialects. I think that the toki pona community should translate it and submit our version. They have a version in Esperanto and Ido, so they are fine with conlangs. Why not a version in toki pona? I really think we can do this!
wile sona li mute e sona.

La menso estas kiel paraŝuto , ĝi nur funkcias se vi malfermas ĝin.

Si hoc legere scis, nimium eruditionis habes.

Yes. It seems a tp thing to do. I think at least parts of it have been done earlier, but I can't find anything any more.
But, happily, we have a search engine, which came up with this (from 2006 or so, so rudimentary)

lawa pi ken jan.

1. jan ali li jo e ken sama.
jan ali li jo e lawa ona e sona ona.
jan ali li jan pi kulupu wan.

2. jan ali li jo e ken jan.
jan ali pi ma ali li jo e ken sama.

3. jan ali li ken pali e wile ona.
taso jan ala li ken pakala e jan ante.

4. jan ala li jan anpa pi jan ante.
jan ala li ken jo e jan ante.

5. jan ala li ken pana wawa li ken anpa li ken pakala e jan ante.

6. jan ali li jan tawa lawa.(="Everyone has the right to recognition
everywhere as a person before the law")

7. lawa li sama li pona tawa jan ali.


The finish never arrived, apparently and most of the subsequent items in this area have been classic hairsplits about just the right word for ... .
