  They are generated in a two-step process:

    1.  The data files get turned into a series of HTML .inc files.
    2.  The inc files are included by a stub index.wml in each

  It seems to me that you're complaining there is no English source
 to translate - when the files:


   are the very source which should be translated!

   If I've misunderstood the nature of your complaint then please do
  let me know.  (I accept that the script which generates the .inc files
  shouldn't output any non-HTML, and should use gettext.  I will
  investigate that ASAP - but right now it only uses minimal English
  in the output, so changing it shouldn't be difficult.)
