Re: [wg-review] Re: [cctld-discuss] Comments on review of DNSOby Mr Park

the cultural imperialism of ICANN.  Volunteer transaltions could cause
misinterpreting problems.  It should be a professional body trained and
working for ICANN like the UN Translating and Simultaneous Interpreting

You have not read my e-mails with attention.  I am only asking for
transaltion of crucial ICANN documents to start.

Burdening ICANN?? I feel like crying.  They are asking the ccTLD

No has leido mis e-mails con atención.  Solo pido para empezar la
traducción de documentos cruciales de ICANN.

Sobrecargar a ICANN.  Me dan ganas de llorar.  Están pidiendo a los
ccTLD que paguen por la mayoría del presupuesto de ICANN.  ¿No
deberíamos de sacar algo en contrapartida?
