It should be updated every hour, although it might be every 24 hours.
Hamish should be able to confirm this. (Hamish, can we please ensure the 
docs are turned around every hour now in order to support the translators).

Looking at subversion, it seems that someone has copied all English 
versions of files into the the Chinese directory.
This is confusing the status spreadsheet, which only works on 
timestamps, and can't tell the difference between Chinese and English 

To fix this, I've removed the untranslated documents from the Chinese 
translated directory.
(This is ok, because our build scripts automatically replace any 
untranslated document with an English document)

So when you translate a document now, you will need to do a:
svn add filename
svn commit -m"Added new Chinese translated file" filename
