RE: [review period - step 4] Slovak CAT for WCAG 2.1 - Re: Slovakia: announcement of completed translation WCAG 2.1 ()

Dear Jia and colleagues,

the CAT has been published alongside with the Errata and Summary page. Links are the same and both locations are up-to-date. We have been waiting only for the errata page to go live on the website of the ministry. Translation header (Disclaimer boilerplate) has been added and filled with current information. 

Links to the translation (unchanged)

Stakeholders have been notified last week when we sent announcement to the translators list. We will reiterate the information at the working group meeting scheduled in a few days.

From the previous email:
* Markup: <> - PASS
* CSS: <> - as good as the current version English live on W3C 
* Links: <> - PASS
* I18N: <> - PASS
use <hreflang="en"> for original English resources that you don't translate. - DONE

Thank you very much for your excellent coordination, we will be monitoring the public archive of the mailing list now and also forwarding any remarks should we receive any via other channels.

Please let me know about any issues or other necessary steps.

Thanks again and have a wonderful week,

Subject: [review period - step 4] Slovak CAT for WCAG 2.1 - Re: Slovakia: announcement of completed translation WCAG 2.1 ()

Dear Milan,

Following the CAT announcement, we are now at the step in the Policy for Authorized Translation when W3C initiates the review process, which will last until 13 May 2021.

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 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.

The dedicated mailing list set up for the review process is:

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 can send an e-mail to the list, apart from the fact that at the first send 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 stakeholders and 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, which was done on 9 April:

We invite you to follow the policy for step 5:
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.

Please be kindly reminded of using the uniformed "Disclaimer Boilerplate":

Best regards,
Xueyuan Jia on behalf of W3C
