Some of you may already have this file downloaded in the past. But with the new RRS 2009-2012 it was in need of an update.
I'm talking about a file (xls) with Protest Conclusions and Decisions for each and every rule. The wording that can be used in protests as final conclusions, rules that apply and for the decision. The words have been taken from the actual RRS-rule and will reflect exactly what is needed. No more - No less.
Originally started for the 2004 Olympics as a tool for the jury, a group of judges has been updating and expanding the file in leaps and bounds.
The latest version will include beside the English wording, translations in Dutch, German, Italian, French and Spanish (if we can find a volunteer for the translation of the latter)
John Allan has been doing the bulk of the latest up date and I'm very happy to post a provisional version of the file on LTW:
Provisional, because the translations haven't been added yet and the wording is still being scrutinized by a couple of earlier contributors.
The wording has been organized in a Excel-file so that you can use a quick search "function" by choosing the appropriate rule number in the purple box.
Automatically the words that are to be used for that particular rule are displayed. There are three worksheets in the file: accessible by the colored tabs at the bottom. Eventually we will ad columns with the translations which can be hidden, save for original English and the language you want. (That is, if I can get that function operational.)
In light of the newly started series on "Fact Finding Friday", you can already use the provisional file to find the wording for the conclusions and for the decision. Translating will take another month or so and that would be a little late.....
As always, if you have improvements? Let me know.
