ISO 639 JAC members:

I had a phone call yesterday from this person from a software company
in Spain asking about Valencian. You may all recall the discussion we had
about this topic a few months ago. We are planning to add Valencian as a
caption with Catalan, but I do need to know the French form of the name to
do so. Could someone please supply (Anila?)? Also, in terms of his
question, shall I just put him in touch with Havard?

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly Rebecca. Do
you know when ISO TC 37 will complete the work, or
alternatively, please could you recommend me the best
means to get in contact with them?

Thanks & Best regards,

Dominic
