Dear ICANN Staff

Thanks for this opportunity to comment on the draft IRP supplementary 

The Bylaws provide that "All IRP proceedings shall be administered in English 
as the primary working language, with provision of translation services for 
Claimants if needed."

My suggestion to the drafting team would be that they develop this rule in a 
fashion that enhances diversity.

For instance, the supplementary procedures could provide, inter alia, the 
following concretizations of the above rule:

-          That translation also means interpretation during hearings.

-          That, when translation services are required, they are granted per 
default (and rejection is ruled out generally).

-          Also that the translated documents are provided at the same time as 
the original English documents or, at least, that the corresponding deadlines 
only count whenever the translated document has also reached the interested 
party, etc.

Hope this may be taken on board by the drafting team.

Best regards

Jorge Cancio
Swiss GAC Rep.
