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
them):
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
experience;
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!

Alex.
