This document was originally written in Spanish, the official language of Uruguay where LACNIC is legally incorporated and whose laws and regulations LACNIC must comply with. Likewise, unofficial information and documents are also written in Spanish, as this is the language in which most of LACNIC's collaborators and officers work and communicate. We do our best to ensure that our translations are reliable and can serve as guides for our non-Spanish-speaking members. However, discrepancies may exist between the translations and the original document or information written in Spanish. In this case, the original text written in Spanish will always take precedence.
