Dear Haakon,

On behalf of the W3C and of the WAI team, I am happy to notify you, as 
the LTO, to proceed with the preparation of a Candidate Authorized 
Translation of WCAG 2.0 (http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/) into Norwegian.

As discussed offline, we are now at step 3 of the policy for Authorized 
W3C Translations, in which the LTO is expected to develop a "Candidate 
Authorized Translation (CAT)" of the entire document:

Best regards,
  Shadi Abou-Zahra (in lieu of Coralie Mercier)
