Dear Daniel

I am the W3C person monitoring the w3c-translators mailing list.

You are welcome to translate into German
(you gave a URI containing www-mit, it is probably a mirror)

You don't have to ask permission. It's rather a notification to a group of  
people that you'd like to start work on a translation.

But typically we don't encourage to translate Working Drafts, because of  
the unstable nature of this type of document, and we don't feature Working  
Drafts in the Translations database. I understand that you see benefit in  
translating this WD, and this is fine.

Thanks a lot for letting us know.
You translation may interest people ; you are welcome to advertize the  
link to it on this list when your work is complete.

Best regards,
