Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) is pleased to announce that several Authorized W3C Translations of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 are being developed. Completed and planned translations are listed in *WCAG 2.0 Translations* at:
    http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/translations

Authorized W3C Translations are reviewed by stakeholders and then designated as official translations, as defined in the *Policy for Authorized W3C Translations* at:
    http://www.w3.org/2005/02/TranslationPolicy

Draft "Candidate Authorized Translations" available for review will be announced to the WAI Interest Group (IG) mailing list, described at:
    http://www.w3.org/WAI/IG/#mailinglist

W3C encourages the translation of its specifications and resources into different languages. For information on translating documents and links to existing translations, see W3C Translations at:

WAI particularly encourages the development of W3C Authorized Translations of WCAG 2.0 and other technical specifications to facilitate their adoption and implementation internationally. For a list of translation priorities, see Translating WAI Documents at:
