Dear Shown,
I will try to get hold of already translated documents. However I think that
there are new technologies in place now in relation to waht was modern at
the time when WCAG 1.0 was writen.
I think that we should focus on WCAG 2.0 even if it is a draft document. As
we know, it will become official recommendation  sooner or later.

Best regards,

Dear Pawel,

Thank you for your offer to translate WAI documents.

Please note that WCAG 1.0 is old (although it is still the current active
version), and WCAG 2.0 is in development. In fact, WCAG 2.0 Working Draft
went to Last Call today, see:

For a list of suggested priorities for translating WAI documents, please
