For french translations of material written in other languages, you have
www.traduc.org where translators and proof-readers collaborate. The
editing work is done in cooperation on the list and by the project leader.

Actually, www.linux-france.org does much more editing work than we do.

For the LDP, http://www.linuxdoc.org/vlist.html#te sounds like an
interesting starting point.

Are you offering to set up a web page to list these resources as a
first step to explore possible ways of coordination? :-)
