[LTO approved - step 2 to 3] Re: Ukrainian translation of WCAG 2.1

Dear Anton,

Many thanks to you and the DIA Support Project (UNDP Ukraine) for being 
willing to lead the translation, and recruiting the stakeholder 

On behalf of the W3C and of the WAI team, I am happy to notify you, in 
your quality of LTO, to proceed with the preparation of a Candidate 
Authorized Translation of WCAG 2.1 (<https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/>) 
into Ukrainian.

Meanwhile, in order to facilitate the widest review as much as possible, 
we encourage LTO to recruit more stakeholders as you are able, such as 
industry web developers.

We are entering step 3 of the policy for Authorized W3C Translations, in 
which the LTO develops a "Candidate Authorized Translation (CAT)" of the 
entire document (<https://www.w3.org/2005/02/TranslationPolicy.html>). 
When complete, the LTO announces the CAT and its URI on the translators' 
mailing list (<w3c-translators@w3.org>).

Thanks again for being patient, and sorry for the late response due to 
some internal process.

Please feel free to reach out for any questions or more information.

Best regards,
Xueyuan Jia, W3C Marketing & Communications
