Hi Xueyuan,

Thank you for your support to go to the next step of the authorized

Following up on your mail, we contacted the missing stakeholders and asked
them to approve the translation on the mailing list. The result is that we
published a new list of stakeholders including new stakeholders that were
added after the initial mail was sent out: <

19 of the 23 stakeholders (including the LTO and the Benelux Chapter of
W3C) have in fact reviewed the CAT and consider it to be an accurate
translation. Four stakeholders have not responded to the request. Two of
them indicated on the phone that because of Corona crisis they did not have
time. In one case the person working at the stakeholder had just changed
jobs and could not be reached. We received no objections.

As you proposed, on top of the review results in Dutch <
I have also summarize the discussion in English at <
The comments on the CAT have been added to the translated document, under
"Samenvatting van publieke commentaren op de kandidaat geautoriseerde
vertaling". See: <

Hope these additions make it possible to shift to the next step (step 6) of
the process.

Kindest regards,
