Need help translating UK English pattern
I need help. I found the following pattern online but am having trouble "translating" it into American-friendly instructions:

Method for the slippers
The soles (two the same): Using 3 3/4mm needles cast on 9 stitches and work 1 row moss stitch. Working the whole sole in moss stitch, increase 1 stitch at each end of next row by knitting into front and back of first and last stitch. (11 stitches on needle.) Work 9cm without shaping. Decrease 1 stitch at each end of row by knitting first 2 stitches together and last 2.
Cast off remaining 9 stitches in moss stitch.
The uppers (two the same) :sing 3 3/4mm needles, cast on 19 stitches. Working the whole upper in moss stitch, increase 1 stitch at end of next row by knitting into front and back of last stitch, then increase 1 stitch at same edge on the next 5 rows for the toe shaping. (25 stitches on needle) Work 4 rows without shaping, finishing at straight back edge. Cast off 12 stitches in moss stitch at start of next row. Decrease 1 stitch at end of next row by knitting last 2 stitches together. Decrease 1 stitch at start of next row by knitting first 2 stitches together. Increase 1 stitch at end of next row by casting on 1 stitch after last stitch. Work 1 row without shaping. Cast on 13 stitches at end of next row (25 stitches on needle).
Work 4 rows without shaping. Decrease 1 stitch at toe end on next 6 rows. Cast off remaining 19 stitches.

Finishing
Join straight edges at back of heel on uppers. Insert sole, pin around edge and attach using simple blanket stitch, easing in fullness around toe.
