CPRR wants to be able to offer an introductory page to its work in a variety of international languages. Can you help us translate a single page into your language? All languages accepted. We already have: Dutch and French.


Spanish, French, German and other languages which use the ISO Latin-1 character set are easy to add to the Internet in a way that all browsers on all operating systems can read. Unfortunately, other character sets, such as those found in Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew, Greek, Russian, etc., require the user to have system software configured to read these character sets.

Cross-platform compatability (being able to see the same language on a Mac and a PC, or even in different browsers) with these non-ISO Latin-1 languages can be problematic. Non ISO Latin-1 language translations need to be sent in an image format.

However, CPRR can accept translations in all the Romanized (ISO Latin-1) languages (French, Spanish, German, etc) via standard e-mail text. If you can do this, skip to the section below entitled "ENGLISH VERSION OF THE TEXT WE NEED TRANSLATED".

Specifications for submitting images with non ISO Latin-1 text


We ask for all of the text inside the box below to be translated into your language.

Welcome to the website of the Council for Palestinian Restitution and Repatriation (CPRR) at

This single page is offered for [insert your language here]-speaking visitors to this site, and offers a brief introduction to CPRR and the English-language resources on this site.

Through its legal department, CPRR will provide Palestinian victims and refugees with legal advice and assistance in achieving their rights to repatriation, restitution and reparation for lost income attributable to displacement, expulsion and confiscation, and all associated rights.

CPRR will research, collect and document data relating to Palestinian claims and will conduct through its information department intensive educational campaigns about the plight of Palestinian victims.
