  3. Direct all translation related discussions to the specification mailing list. Maintainer and reviewer will need to join this list:
  4. Maintainer obtains a MS Word or ODT copy of the English version to facilitate the translation:
  5. Create a github repository and assign maintainer admin access. If you are not familiar with Github we will assist you in checking in your work product files and creating the additional required files prior to the release of the translation.

It has been translated from the original English text. In the event there is confusion between this translation and the English version, The English text shall take precedence.”
  7. Once the formatted version is approved: send maintainer and reviewers formal email sign off requests via the specification mailing list. This sign off is largely about ensuring the translation content accurately and completely represents the text found in the English version.
