[gnso-iocrc-dt] The list of "temporarily reserved strings"
Dear Alan, Thank you for following up on this issue. The GAC letter (attached) includes Danish/Norwegian and Japanese translations for the Olympic words as well. As far as we can see, and we have double checked our translation records, the Arabic is correct, and identical in the GAC letter and Applicant Guidebook. In order to avoid reopening the lengthy and time consuming discussions that we had about languages during deliberations regarding top level protection, we would like to reemphasize that our position in regard to these Recommendations, is that the IOC seeks to temporarily reserve those strings listed in Applicant Guidebook 18.104.22.168.3 (the 6 UN languages plus Greek, German, and Korean), pending the outcome of a PDP.

I did a quick review of them. Red Cross: The GAC list includes Danish/Norwegian and Japanese that are not in the AG. IOC: The lists are almost identical, except to my untrained eye (as well as Google Translate), the Arabic version in the two documents seem quite different. Alan
