I believe the accurate term then is "localized": Internationalisation
(i18n) being the task of providing infrastructure for localisation

Localized documents is transformations of documents into other locales
than the master (usually english, but more complex here, I suspect).

"Internationalised" documents would be index pages enhanced to inform
about the mesh of wikis, their master documents and their localisations.
And references on each document to other language representations of
same content.
