Stakeholders committee ready for the "authorized French WCAG 2.0 translation"

Good evening,

On behalf of "association BrailleNet", I'm happy to officially inform 
the W3C of our intention to become the LTO  for developing an authorized 
translation of WCAG 2.0 into French.

We followed the "W3C Policy for Authorized W3C Translations" and we have 
identificated major and relevant stakeholder organizations with which we 
will coordinate the review of the translation.

All the stakeholder organizations which have formally agreed to be in 
this committee are listed on the following Web page :

They come from different areas - private and public sector - and include 
local disability organizations and accessibility research organizations.

More, 5 countries where French is spoken are represented : Belgium, 
Canada (Quebec), France, Republic of Mauritius, Switzerland.

I will be the contact person for this job and on behalf of the "WCAG 2.0 
French Committee", I'm waiting for the formal agreement of W3C in order 
to start working on the WCAG2.0 Candidate Authorized Translation.

Very best regards,

Directeur AccessiWeb
