Dear Andreu,

Our understanding is that the three issues raised by SIDAR on 1 August 
2007 [1], were part of their initial comments sent on 22 November 2006 
[2], and to which the LTO had agreed to. If this is indeed the case, 
then you may have forgotten to incorporate these changes in the updated 
draft of 25 May 2007 [3] and we kindly ask you to revise this. If 
however you have a different opinion on this latest intervention by 
SIDAR then please let us know your position on it.

Please note that both Coralie and myself will be out of the office 
throughout most of August but will be happy to follow-up as needed upon 
our return. Apologies for this rather choppy proceedings and thank you 
for your hard work in making it happen. We will be looking in improving 
the process to make future authorized translations more smooth.
