change on the translation pages at W3C

Dear all,

some of you may have already realized that the home page of the translations
have changed recently. There were two problems with the old page:

- it did not scale well with the increasing number of documents that got
translated (thanks to you!)
- some search combinations were difficult to find (find the translations done by
a specific person in a specific language, etc)

The new page (on the same URI[1]) tries to address some of these problems. From
the home page you will find the usual links to lists of translations in specific
languages, as well as all the translations listed in order of technology,
language, or translator(s). There are also links to similar lists restricted to
recommendations or authorized translations only.

The realy new thing is [2] which gives you an advanced search facility, where
you can dig for the translations of one specific document, language, etc.

All the old URI-s are of course valid, though obviously redirected to the old

For those of you who are interested by the technology under the hood, so to say,
you can look at[3]. Essentially: all RDF files are the same as before, but the
system displaying them has been changed.

Let me take this opportunity to thank you again for your contribution. We list
now over 700 translations in this database which, in my opinion, is a really
large number in the circumstances of voluntary work. Thanks again
