That's funny as I found going from US inches to metric fairly easy. Now going to Imperial would make your head hurt, as an imperial gallon is like nothing else ....
For US to metric, 10 feet is three meters (very close), a pound is just under a half kilo ... A meter is 3.5 inches (80 mm) longer than a yard. A foot is 1/3 of a meter...
4 inches is 10 Cm.
None of these are exact, but plenty close enough for most gaming needs.

highly unlikely... and to translate all of the measurements into metric (I hate imperial too) is a pain in the butt. In the end I just learned to use Imperial, Dungeons and Dragons and many other systems are in it...

as I don't know the source I can't say something about the amount of translation-work...

anyway at the moment for me the most important "translation"-feature would be a switch to convert the us-measures (inch etc.) into the metric units (meter) et vice versa.
that task should not be hard and would probably be quite welcome for most users outside the usa.

are there any plans for a German 4th ed. Basic Set currently?
I hope so but didn't hear anything...
