Yes, of course. :)

I did not mean that I wanted to test my translation on the server. I
never did that.

Still I need to know what "make" command to use on my system too if I
want to create the documentation locally and check that the translated
version compiles correctly.

Also if the translated version does not show on the website correctly it
is necessary to understand what is going wrong if I want to be able to help.

That is a starting point for me to understand, thanks. 

So I guess the webpages for debian-faq are gathered from the debian-faq

OK, thanks again. debian-faq is indeed a packaged manual.
