Dear Mohamed JEMNI,

Congratulation and thank you for the effort deployed for the translation 
of this important document.

I would be happy to give more review  during the review process.

At a first glance here are some inputs:

1. I agree with what Richard Ishida Says. I can also help validating the 
2. Why in the title you use " الواب" (for "Web") while you use "الويب" 
everywhere in the text?
3. I have noticed that some links are missing.  For example, in §1.1 
(http://www.utic.rnu.tn/wcag2.0/#text-equiv),  the original text links 
to Guideline 4.1, but the translation doesn't. Besides, it's the  case 
for most "Guideline x.y" (and other references).
4. You have translated the glossary. But you don't link to it from the 
text. (e.g. in 1.1.1 "non-text content " should link to it's définition 
in the glossary section.)
5. I wouldl suggest to use "ar-TN" as document language. May be not all 
Arabic countries use the same vocabulary. e.g, about "accessibility", 
Moroocco government says "woulouja" (ولوجية) vs "nafath" ( نفاذ)
in this text. Both are OK for me. Yours may be better because it also 
means "access",  (ولوج) in the Moroccan vocabulary.
6. Some typos? about vowelization: in 1.1.1 first bullet I would write ( 
مُكوَّنا ) or simply ( مكونا ), instead of ( مُكوٍّنا )

7. What about Font-family like "Traditional Arabic" or  "Arabic 
Typesetting" ?

I'll be very pleased to send you more comments after detailed reading. 
Once again, thank you for this translation effort.

Best regards,
