Dear Tom

A Local authority may have a more general legal requirement to provide
information in an appropriate language.  I would agree that the DPA itself
would be satisfied by supplying it in English. After all you are holding it
in English, and the DPA gives individuals the right to see information that
you hold about them.....

Hope this is of use.

I am speaking without checking (never a good idea), but the FOI requirements
are that a request is legitimate in 
any language, however the response can be limited to English. I am not sure
about the DPA, would suggest that the 
same applies. In which case you have discharged your obligations.
