     Hello,

     I think that this document, as it is ultimately intended for end users,
     will need to be translated and localised for different countries.
     Different cultures have different expectations and people with
     disabilities organise themselves in different ways. It would be useful
     to add an appendix to the translation giving contact addresses and
     suggestions for alternative approaches more suited to the local 
context.

     regards,

     Alan

     someone could be in touch contact with them.
