My apologies for not contributing sooner!

I have been following the communications on the list on behalf of 
the (.tp) registry.  I may / may not have all the necessary 
information to contribute.

I note the effort and energy that is going into this issue and 
although a native English speaker ( though people may find it hard 
to follow my accent ) I beleive the issue divides into 2 main areas.

1. The practical issue - accurately translated documents in local 

2. The 'political / cost' decision to have this as an ongoing part of 
the service.

>From the mailings I am unsure of the audience needs !

That is - how many people who use and need the information have 
an ability to read and fully understand English !

Of those who do not have - or feel they do not have - what 
languages are they using.

This information - if not already known - would give the background 
information to identify the needs of the audience.

In the interim, I feel it would be good to progress the issue 
pragmatically - and I believe that this can indeed be done by 
accepting the offers of translation - particularly of all key 
documents into as many languages as is practical.

I know from experience - good and not so good - from working in 
transnational projects that in practice - the people receiving 
information through this type of communication require to share 
this with a number of colleagues.  

This is required to ensure good sound  management reasons,  
ensuring consensus with local teams.

We also require to ensure that communication on the issues we 
are dealing with - have the potential to be fully understood by as 
wide an audience as possible, ensuring that our role in participating 
and therefore representing communities has the widest level of 
feedback and support.
