Dear Goran,

We very much welcome your translations to Slovenian. We encourage you to provide them in a way that we can also publish them on the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) website.

Information about translating most of the accessibility resources is here:
We look forward to receiving your "Intent to Translate:" e-mail(s), per step 3 under "If you want to translate a WAI resource:".

> Therefore, please advise if it's OK to translate the W3C Accessibility Standards Overview and some other sections as well as translate and subtitle some of your videos.

Yes, the W3C Accessibility Standards Overview page and the video subtitles are ready for translation. As soon as you send e-mail to the public-wai-translations@w3.org (per step 3 "e-mail template"), I will send you specific instructions for each web page and subtitle file that you would like to translate.

The Quick Reference is developed from separate files, including <https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/>. Let us know if you want to translate that document, and we will point you to a somewhat different process.

We look forward to your translations.

Best regards,
~ (Mrs.) Shawn Lawton Henry

Digital accessibility is among our highest priorities and as per UNCRPD we take part in the dialogue with the government in preparing legislative acts such as the one on the accesibility of public sector bodies' websites and mobile apps. Republic of Slovenia has transposed the EU directive on this and starting September except for a few exemptions all public sector websites will have to comply.

Apparently they have no trouble comprehending the WCAG standards but implementing them seems to be a bit of a challenge since it's a relatively new field and there's scant practical experience to draw from. In response, the MPA decided to prepare an interactive didactic tool to assist them and we've been asked to assist where possible.

We can of course provide a list of all specific items we're interested in using. As indicated the translations would be used for internal guidance and training purposes within the government but the MPA probably wouldn't mind if they were published on your site along with translations to other languages.
