Dear Emmanuelle, all

I was surprised to see a request to reopen a revision period for the
Catalan authorized translation of WCAG 1.0, since this translation was
approved by the W3C, and announced formally [1] last 20 December 2006.

In addition, the review period was already extended twice, prior to the
official announcement of the translation.

The Lead Translation Organization are of the opinion that the W3C policy
was followed and that the approved translation has a high level of
quality, that several entities related to accessibility and Catalan
language participated in it and approved it. They believe that the Catalan
translation fulfills abundantly its mission of disseminate the guidelines
in the Catalan linguistic community, and remind of the fact that the only
official version is the original, English one.

For the above-mentioned reasons, no new revision period will be open for
the Catalan authorized translation of WCAG 1.0.

I thank all the parties involved for their collaboration and excellent

Best regards,
