This is the behaviour by design of moinmoin. The behaviour is usually

In this case, the page should be named something like:
  es/SpahishL10N/BeginerGuide or es/SpahishL10N/Introduction or similar
(you can add a note to that page, to suggest the maintainer to rename

In which case, moinmoin would reply "...not found"

I can't think of any sensible way to fix this problem, right now :(

(Hopefully, g**gle is more clever than the built in search engine, and
it will find the page.)


P.S. we are having some discussion with the i18n team to see how the
     translation could be handled more effectively on the wiki.
