Hi all,

As Javier and Charles they have already explained, in the SIDAR site
(http://www.sidar.org) translations are picked up as much as original
documents in Spanish, about accessibility.

The translations are in: http://www.sidar.org/traduc/traduc.htm and they
include so much documents of the WAI like of other persons as William

The document that Charles mentions, Applying the Guidelines", it is in:
http://www.sidar.org/emmy/compren /

We have diverse discussion groups and of work in those that it can
participate anyone in Spanish or Portuguese.

Also, the first tool of revision of the accessibility totally in Spanish was
born like a task of one of their work groups. Their name is "Test de
Accesibilidad Web" (TAW) and it can be used from: http://www.tawdis.net

Our V Gatherings will take place in Argentina, in the city of Mar del Plata,
25-27 October, and all you are invited.
Information on the Gatherings in: http://www.sidar.org/jornadas/vjorna.htm
and in: http://www.redespecialweb.org/SIDAR-IBERDISCAP2001

And I don't want to fail to mention the campaign "Internet Accessible to
ALL" that hope all have already signed. It is in:
http://www.sidar.org/firmas /

Hi all,

There are translations of a lot of W3C work linked from working group home
pages, or from specifications. And there are books and other materials
published on accessibility in many languages. WAI, like other W3C groups,
welcomes work in lots of languages. (We are, after all, the World Wide Web
Consortium <grin/>).

For spanish (both in Spain and around the world, especially in South
America), as Javier mentioned, there is a lot of work done or tracked by
SIDAR, which has its own working groups whose discussion takes place in
spanish, both on translating and on producing documents. In one case, the
techniques for implementing WCAG using popular tools, it is on the english
side that we have been slow off the mark - Emmanuelle Gutierrez has
what we plan to use as a foundation document (it starts with the quick tips
only) in spanish and I am behind on translating it to english for the

Just a reminder: Where people are actually translating w3c work, please
coordinate via the translators list - there may already be people who have
done most of the work for you.

  Hello all,

  Translations into spanish of many WAI guidelines and documents may be
  in www.sidar.org, where the spanish working group on web accessibility has
  uploaded information for the last 5 years, and Emmanuelle Guitiérrez has

  Nevertheless Jorge's document is more than welcome, and links could be
