Seeking a Japanese native-speaker/collaborator on book project

Hello,
 
I wrote an ESL book which is going to be published in the Spanish-speaking world.
 
I'd also like to do a version of the book for Japanese English-learners.
 
I'd need a Japanese collaborator to help out.  You wouldn't have to do a full translation of the book,
I would ask that you add introductions to each chapter in Japanese and in the vocabulary sections
I'd ask that you add Japanese characters to help explain the difficult English words in the text.
 
I also want to change the main character in the book to a Japanese hero/heroine. (She is from Spain right now.)
 
I can explain further if we meet.
 
I would ask that your written Japanese be excellent and that you have at least a college degree.
If you have teaching experience in Japanese that would also help.
 
As well as adding Japanese to the book I would ask you to help me do an internet search to find the right publishers
to whom we would submit our book.
 
If we make any money, we can split the money 50/50 :)  We could also donate some to a Japanese survivor's fund - but I
am not sure how much money we might make.
 
Here's a bit about the book on amazon:

Also, I'm sending the book via attachment as a Word '97 file (everyone seems to be able to open that).  So even if you can help with the book, you are welcome to read it for free. :)
 
Dan
