Hi,

The TDF/LibreOffice global websites use International language as its
international language base. The documents will not be a legal document,
but a translation of a legal document. The TDF is registered in Germany
and the legal documents are in DE.


the documents in their current form have been translated by a lawyer
together with a native speaker. So, from my POV, we should definitely be
very careful in changing words, and involving someone understanding the
German legal system can't harm (I can't volunteer, I desperately lack time).

Otherwise, I fear, we change the document according to "sounds good", but
screw up the meaning :-)


I think what it needs is more a matter of correcting the English
grammar and punctuation, not making it "sound good", although there
are a few places where the wording might be improved. Unfortunately, I
can't volunteer to help, either.
