All,

Please note that there are separate instructions and process for translation of material under http://www.w3.org/International/.  See http://www.w3.org/International/2004/06/translation  

Note, in particular, that we host i18n material on the W3C site (so that it is content negotiated, links to other translations as they are done, and benefits from periodic changes to the boilerplate text, etc), and that the starting point for translation is a PHP file that I will send you, rather than the HTML displayed on the site. The PHP slightly changes the format of the page for translations and significantly reduces the work involved in translation (since a large amount of boilerplate text is already translated)(this also improves consistency of the navigation and other text).

A couple of people have recently begun translations without being aware of this.  If anyone is currently working on or contemplating working on a translation of internationalization material under /International, please let me know and I will get you set up as needed.

Thanks,
RI
