Translation of the WGI AR5 SPM from English into the other five official languages of the United Nations was done
by translators working for the WMO Language, Conference and Publishing Services Department. The assistance of
scientists from the WGI chapter teams who acted as scientific translation editors for each language is gratefully
A number of countries have undertaken translations of the SPMs into languages that are not official languages of the United Nations.
IPCC welcomes these initiatives but would note that the translations have been prepared under the responsibility of the respective country
or institutions. The IPCC does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy of these translations into non-UN languages. In working to achieve
the widest possible dissemination of IPCC knowledge, the IPCC is pleased to assist in making these translations available.
