We will update Snakes & Ladders - Web Applications, but request help
for the translations into the other languages.

There is a new XLS file uploaded to Crowdin with the updated 2016
Proactive Controls in it, together with unaltered text.


I have also attached the file to this email. The requested
translations are highlighted in orange.

Best regards

Colin and Katy
