The text I linked to is a valid translation of it, there are other texts with similar content, same kind if wording exists in tibetan tradition of it, I have seen and read it many times.
There has occured a divine intervention. Rulu's translation has suddenly changed, his translation of the first four precepts has changed mysteriously. Before there was something wordy and complicated that avoided saying anything meaningful. This new translation is terse and exact. Only possible explanation is that divine bodhisattvas have produced it.

If some one doubts the existence of the mentioned bodhisattva precept, I have found in Alex Berzin's archives a teaching about Bodhisattva vows. In the vows that belong to the category of Discriminating Awareness we have eight vows, fifth one (Forsaking the Mahayana Vehicle) begins:" The sixth root bodhisattva downfall is claiming that the Mahayana texts are not Buddha's words. Etc..."
