That was the initial idea, but I must admit that I'm a bit lost in how the
documentation is build. It doesn't look like the standard Sphinx example
anymore ;-)

I'm not sure when we can call it "done." Probably there will be always
chapters missing, but then the page will be the English one. (I think the
"Standards pages for example are not really fun to translate).
So far the German translation has the largest amount of translated overview
documents (it's not fully translated though). I don't know how to do with
other languages, that started translation. They will mostly be in English,
so do we define some criteria from when a language should be added?
