Dear Kenny, all,

We are now at the step in the Policy for Authorized Translation when W3C
initiates the review process, which will last until 30 May 2014.

cf. http://www.w3.org/2005/02/TranslationPolicy.html
4. W3C Initiation of Review Process:
     1. W3C announces a review period of at least 30 days of the CAT on
the translators' mailing list, specifying a separate, publicly archived
mailing list, in W3C or W3C Office Web space, to be used for commenting.
This mailing list may be a per-language list for all CATs in that
language, such as public-auth-trans-hu@w3.org for any Hungarian CAT, or
a list specifically set up for that CAT. All comments on the CAT must be
sent to this list. Postings to the mailing list may either be in the
language of translation or in English.

5. LTO Notification of Review, Monitoring of Comments, and Revision of CAT:
    1. The LTO notifies the stakeholder organizations of the
availability of the CAT, the start of the review period, and the
existence of the mailing list for comments; directs them to send
comments to this mailing list; and copies this notification to the
general translators' mailing list.
    2. The LTO monitors the mailing list comments; provides
clarification when necessary; and summarizes consensus on specific
issues (when possible) to help the ongoing discussion.
    3. After the end of the review period, the LTO issues a new version
of the CAT as needed, and provides a list, in English and the language
of translation, of the points raised, and a summary of the discussions
during the review period, describing the problems found and solutions
agreed with the other reviewers. This summary must be posted both to the
publicly archived mailing list for this CAT, and to the general
translators' mailing list.
    4. In the event that no comments or only very few comments are
received during the review period, the LTO ensures that a majority of
the reviewing organizations send email to the translators' mailing list
confirming that they have in fact reviewed the document, and that they
consider it to be an accurate translation.
    5. The LTO then advises W3C whether a new review round is necessary
or not.

The dedicated mailing list has been set up for the review process:

and the mail archive is at:

Subscription to this list can be done by sending an e-mail, with the
subject set to 'subscribe', to:

The mailing list and the archive are public. Anybody subscribed to this
list can send an e-mail to the list, apart from the fact that at the
first message, an anti-spam "ritual" has to be followed (via an
acknowledgement e-mail).

We encourage you to announce this review period to facilitate comments
from the public.

Please, communicate this information to your partners (this is step 5.1
of the Policy), and ask them to subscribe to the mailing list and use it
for the comments. Step 5.1 requests that the general translators'
mailing list be copied when announcing availability of the CAT. This was
done already:

Best regards,
  Shadi Abou-Zahra for Coralie Mercier, on behalf of W3C.
