Thanks for volunteering. The specification is quite long, so you may
wish to share work with other translators on writing and reviewing
translations. I am adding you to the list on

  http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/html40-updates/translations.html

and to the W3C email list for translators as described on that page.

You are free to make your translations available via CD under your
own terms and conditions.  As far as Web-based access goes, we
expect you to give us permission to republish the translated version
and to allow readers to make copies without restrictions. In
practice, I am adding links from the translations page to individual
translations as these are produced.

p.s. sorry for the delay.
