Dear all,

This is to inform that the W3C Finnish Office at the Tampere University 
of Technology, is willing to act as the Lead Translation Organisation 
(LTO) for producing an authorised translation of the Web Content 
Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 in Finnish. This work is kindly supported 
by the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Transport and 
Communications, Finland.

Following the policy for Authorised W3C Translations 
(http://www.w3.org/2005/02/TranslationPolicy), we have identified and 
invited over 80 Finnish organisations (over 100 people) to review the 
translation, as the relevant Finnish stakeholders of the field.

So far the following 34 different organisations have accepted the 
invitation (listed below in arbitrary order, based on information

review period.)

Finally, in order to help the work of the reviewers, we have already 
produced a version of the translation. Should the W3C accept our LTO 
Submission, we will propose that version as the Candidate Authorised 
Translation (CAT), available at
