STATE FOR NEA/MAG

E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PHUM APER KPAO
SUBJECT: AMENDED REQUEST FOR FRENCH AND ARABIC TRANSLATION
OF THE 2007 HUMAN RIGHTS REPORTS

REF: A. SECSTATE 151772

B. RABAT 1698

1. Per the points conveyed Ref A, Post requested Language
Services' assistance in translating the 2007 Human Rights
Report from English to Arabic on November 5 (Ref B). English
to French translation was to have been procured locally,
replicating the procedure used in 2006.

2. Subsequent to the November 5 request, Post's senior
French translator retired, significantly diminishing in-house
translation capabilities pending successful recruitment of a
replacement.

3. As a result, Post amends reftel request to include
Language Services' support in translating both the Arabic and
French versions of the 2007 Morocco Human Rights Reports.

4. Alternatively, Post could procure a translation locally,
but would need a fund cite.
