Handling of languages

Questions should be asked in German, French or Italian. Answers should also be written in one of these languages. 

Articles in "Notifications and Announcements", "Background articles and sources" and "Status of SLRG SSS Events" are published by the SLRG SSS office in German, French and Italian. Depending on the urgency and complexity, we use DeepL Pro or external translation services.

 

We thank everyone for their understanding for this pragmatic approach.
