For GUI translation Werner and Volker will try to find out during the
hackfest, if it is useful to provide an online translation for the GUI
besides using linguist. 

The manual writing and updating with latex seems to be more complex,
and therefore it becomes more and more difficult to find and encourage
people to contribute and translate. I think we need to find a solution
for that, too and maybe it could be a plugin or we switch to something

AFAIK projects such as Mepserver, Geoserver or OSGeo Live use Sphinx.
Don't know if that would work well, especially when we want to
translate the files.
