Hello translators!

I thought of a feature that could help to further promote the W3C
mission. Looking at w3c-translators-fr@w3.org and the discussion
between the three translators of the WCAG1 document I realized how
nice it would be to have a mailing list for Russian translators.

The main purposes of the list would be (I'm sure you're aware of
a) to collect various terms translation by exchanging
translation details and discussions and defining a common vocabulary;
b) to improve the quality of the translations by setting a more or
less standartized collective translation process and sharing
c) to standardize the translation of arguable terms and to
recheck the existing translations;
d) to discuss various issues related to translation into Russian:
tools with Unicode support, phrasal verbs, etc.

Obviously, it's impossible to discuss these in Russian on
w3c-translators. Currently the messages exchanged by the translators
are kept offline and thus are unavailable for the rest of the world.

I wonder if the W3C's mailing list archiver could be configured to
convert the incoming messages into UTF-8, as that could posses a
serious problem taking into account the number of Russian encodings
that are currently in use.

I know that Martin and the team were working on something in this
area. Is there any progress?

Happy translating and happy New Year!
