Hi Pat,

Sidar's translators group [1] are slowly working on translations of the 
RDF and OWL specs, but unfortunately at the moment the people involved are 
few and busy. Currently we're working on the RDF Primer, but there are 
others working on OWL.

A short note explaining who would use it (and even better a little aid in 
taking on a part of the translation) may help to motivate the work. One of 
the difficulties is that most of the people there are not RDF experts, 
which makes it difficult to translate the specs. (On the other hand it 
means a few people learn... :-)

cheers

Chaals (not normally on this list - thanks to danbri for bringing this to 
my attention).
