Thanks for pointing out the oversight !

Swami Gambhirananda has translated the Gita verses to English.  As a test,
I checked this:

ब्रह्मभूतः प्रसन्नात्मा न शोचति न काङ्क्षति ।
समः सर्वेषु भूतेषु मद्भक्तिं लभते पराम् ॥ ५४ ॥

The word 'brahmabhUtaH' will be 'one who has become Brahman', and unique to
Advaita.  Swami G translates the verse:  18.54 *One who has become Brahman*
and has attained the blissful Self does not grieve or desire. Becoming the
same towards all beings, he attains supreme devotion to Me.

There are many such Advaita-only friendly words in the Gita.
