While polyglossia is worth considering as an alternative, I don't
think babel should be a major problem. The corrected file runs OK,
except for some remaining overfull boxes; this can be corrected by

\tolerance=5000 % allow looser spacing
\hyphenpenalty=2000 % discourage excessive use of hyphenation

after \begin{document}. There will be some underfull boxes, but with
word lengths and column widths as in this sample, that's hardly
surprising.
