At the 2006 ADM we budgeted $200 for all translations we would need for the 2006-2007 season. At this point in time, very near the end of the fiscal year, I don't believe we've spent any of it, but have just had a non-sanctioned demand for payment for an amount of more than that total budget, for a relatively insignificant amount of the translating which will have to be done on only one of the many projects which will need translating.

Note: One reason we haven't needed to use a major portion of that amount before this time is due to the hard work and abilities of the web team.

The translation that's been done on the website is amazing. Kudos to you and to the rest of the team.

I am also more than satisfied with the amount of translation we manage to get for free.

But I will always be willing to pay to get things moving in a timely way. I feel that is what's been done here.

To pay this outstanding bill I am willing to go over budget.

I dispute the figure of 200$ that has been presented as the translation budget.

Translation budget $1000.

Confirmed in my notes, and from Charles Mathison.
