Wouldn't a translated reportbug be an invitation for non-english bug
reports? That would surely be helpful for users, but otoh, a maintainer
who can't read the bug reports can't do anything for theses users...
The only way I can see this working would be to have a sort of staging
bts, where users could send their bugs in their mother tongue, and where
some i18n teams could translate and forward to the actual bts. That's a
long way before that happening, and I'm not certain it would work well.
