I think how much is translated would depend on your time to do it.
But best to focus on items that are reasonably stable, and of broad
interest for the best payoff.

I would encourage you to work with WebCom on this.  They may need to
come up with a mechanism for translators who are not members of the
committee to still contribute and manage translated materials easily.
I'm cc:ing WebCom on this message since much of it relates to the web site.

I'm not so sure that we need the map for identifying translations available
or needed.  But I would really like to see a global map that can be used
to find members (voting and associate), conferences, organizations and
so forth.  Arnulf has been talking about managing such information in
a WFS-T and using it as a sort of reference application for our software
stack.  This seems a bit longer term, but it would be a nice way to bring
together several things - our software, maps, and a way of finding things
