Hi Shawn and Sylvie
Do you know if this only relates to the official ISO languages i.e. French and Russian, or is it also relevant to the other W3C Authorized translations. I told my contact in Danish Standards to remember our authorized translation, but I know that some of the national standardization bodies and ISO are very strict about translations, it has to be their own translators.

Sincerely

M.L.I.Sc.
