We do have an implemented solution for the management of
translations in the WWW pages which are currently much more active (23
languages) than the installation (13 langs) or other documents in the DDP
(that might be translated to just three or four langs...).
I was thinking of a way we could deal for this problem, but even if
I had the ideas I do not have the time to code currently (hopefully I will
have that time for Xmas). I will check out the KDE stuff...
