Dear Takaaki,
That’s awesome!
You might be interested to learn that we are aiming to finalize
version 1.0 of the document and submit it to RDA for endorsement as a
supporting output. We are almost there, but progress is unfortunately
I would suggest that we do this exercise first and discuss options on
how to integrate your Japanese version in a second step. It should be
possible to integrate multiple translations into a single Read the
Docs site, I found some documentation [1] on it although I didn’t read
through that detail yet. So it seems we could integrate your version
into if you like.
Note that it is our plan anyway that this should be a living document
that would be amended and extended as needed even after we get the
formal endorsement by RDA.
In any case, you might want to come to one of our monthly group
meetings to present your project there. The next meeting will be the
1rst of March, 08:00 UTC / 09:00 CET / 17:00 JST
Best regards,
