There are many translations under http://www.w3.org/International that 
have been out of date for a very long time, since the English version of 
the page has changed. This week I have been tracking down all such 
translations and contacting the original translators where possible. 
Next week i will begin removing translations if they are out of date and 
we haven't heard from the translator.

For your information, I have also added the following paragraph to the 
translation instructions at 
http://www.w3.org/International/2004/06/translation to clarify how we 
will proceed from now on:

"Updated pages. If the English version of a page is updated, a note will 
be sent to the w3c-translators@w3.org list with information about what 
changed, and a request for the translator to update their translation. 
The page will have a banner added to it that says it is out of date, and 
points to the English original. If the changes are only small additions, 
such as a new paragraph or a new short section, the English may be added 
to the translation while awaiting an update. For most pages, if no 
update has been received for the translation within approximately a 
month of the notification, the translation will be removed."
