Dear Diana

Thanks for writing.

There is no existing translation of WCAG 2.0 into Georgian, so you are  
welcome to undertake the effort of translation. When you are done, just  
send us (w3c-translators@w3.org) a link to your translation and it will be  
added to the Translations database.

There are a couple things I wanted to clarify. You wrote "by stating that  
it [translation] was based on your work". I wanted to remind you that a  
translation is a translation and not an interpretation based on some work.  
The other thing I wanted to clarify is that you make sure you have read  
the information on translations in our W3C Intellectual Property FAQ [1].  
Your translation(s) will need to bear a prominent disclaimer in which you  
disclose, (1) the title of and link to the original English document, (2)  
that your document is a translation which may contain errors, and (3) that  
the original English document on the W3C website is the one that is  
official. (Items (2) and (3) must be in the target language.)
