This from Catholic News Agency (link is to whole story):

Following a similar decision by U.S. Bishops, the Bishops of Australia have voted, in principle, to accept a new English translation of the Roman Catholic Mass, which the Vatican favors as being more faithful to the original Latin text, reported the Sydney Morning Herald.

Bishops in England and Wales have also voted to accept the new English translation, drafted as a result of a Vatican directive issued in 2001 by Pope John Paul II. On June 15, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops also conditionally approved the changes by a mail-in ballot. It is a process that the whole English-speaking Catholic world is undertaking.

Most of the changes to the Mass are minor and generally look similar to the translations approved in the U.S. and U.K.

Hat tip to Gerald.
