First Clement question

Does anyone know if there is a contemporary English translation or paraphrase of First Clement?

For those who may not be aware, Clement of Rome was an early Church father. He is believed to have died around AD 100. He probably personally knew Peter. He wrote a letter (possibly two) to the Corinthians. While not considered the level of scripture, the letter is well respected, and was frequently read in the early church.

Anyway, I’ve found several translations, but none of them are real easy to read. If there’s not one available, I’m throwing around the idea of doing it myself.
