Dear Nick,

It might be helpful to review our email exchanges. Here is the
chronicle (as shown in the emails below):

1) You asked if there was any translation plan at IDNC WG,

2) I raised the translation issue at IDNC WG, as you advised (see the
message below);

3) Chris then referred the translation back to ALAC (obviously there
was no plan for translation at IDNC WG);

4) I, in the belief that there be translation service available at
ALAC side anytime, emailed to you and cced to the WG that translation
could be arranged.

Of course, you are not staffing for ccNSO. I'm well aware of that. I'm
not copying this message to WG list to avoid further confusion. But I
still cannot see what wrong I did in the whole process.

Thanks for that; I will check.

Note that the IDNC can ask that public comment periods and the
documents they relate to be arranged in non-English languages. It
would be far more effective for the two of you to bring up the working
languages, if you will, for the IDNC consultations than for me to do
so at my end. I have warned colleagues internally that such a request
may be forthcoming.

In particular, since the initial set of fast-track IDNs is a fairly
known quantity, would you wish to see the consultations available in
those languages / scripts? Or a subset of them?
