I agree that you absolutely need to get ethics clearing from your university about this. However, I am a bit confused about your reasons for not transcribing - surely if you are doing the translation, you understand the language so could transcribe it? I found transcription hard work but ultimately rewarding - so much comes out of the transcription process itself that I couldn't imagine letting someone else do it, although I suppose it also depends on the type of analysis you are going to use it for.
I was still writing my conclusion the night before I gave it in - asking around, it seems that this is pretty common. My usually super-organized husband was still writing his conclusion the morning before giving it in! Ha! You can do it. (Also I am sure you have already done this but have you factored in printing times? If you have to get it printed and bound by a specific supplier that might also take longer than you expect).
I agree with Tru. I think it sounds very positive. I know it sounds strange that they say it is up to you whether to do the added corrections but thinking about it, it would be very undiplomatic to say "nah, scrap those!" It sounds like they are trying to bring this to a satisfactory conclusion without anyone losing face.
I had a similar experience on this site. I got stuck with the software I was working with and googled for solutions. It came up with a post of MINE on here, detailing how to resolve the problem! Not only had I forgotten how to solve the problem, I had forgotten even having the problem before!
