Sinhala and Tamil translations

Arunasalam Vaithialingam, Senior Programme Officer,Consortium of Humanitarian Agencies, Colombo 7, emailed me in August to seek permission to translate the MSC Guide into Sinhala and Tamil.

Arunasalem has since emailed me to say "the translated version will be made available free of charge via our website ( and as printed document. With regard to the translation, CHA is very much concern over the quality of the language and we have translated a number of books, training manuals, reading materials etc. related to our work. We appreciate your idea of an informed third party to check the quality of the translation"

If you can help with checking the translation please contact me, and/or
contact Arunasalam. Full contact details: Arunasalam Vaithialingam, Senior Programme Officer, Consortium of Humanitarian Agencies, 30/81 Longdon Place,Colombo 7 Phone - + 94 11-2598413 Ext 28, Fax +94 11-2506855 Mo +94 773903848 email

PS: The Sinhala and Tamil translations of the MSC Guide are now available via these links:

Many thanks to Arunasalam Vaithialingam!
