Translation process


Translation leads from CC China Mainland and CC Taiwan prepared in May 2016 the initial drafts and shared them with the group via email. Translation team members reviewed the initial drafts and made their comments on the document directly. Drafts were sent to the Regional Coordinator and HQ. The public comments were done via the mailing lists and websites of participating affiliate teams and the CC Asia Pacific mailing list. Comments were reviewed by the translation team members. The translation team discussed the comments at the Asia Pacific Regional Meeting in Beijing on Jul 2, 2016 (see the discussion notes). Final drafts will be sent to Regional Coordinator and HQ.
