Dear Andrius Survila

Thank you for your feedback on this and thank you for writing. I will  
contact the translator of this document and see if they can do anything  
about it.

Translations are prepared by volunteers to help the communities around the  
World understanding the W3C technologies and, as such, most of them have  
an informative and unofficial character.

That would be fabulous if you could spare some of your time and work on  

I have compiled tips and rules that govern the W3C volunteer translations,  
if you would like to have a look:

Best regards,
