There is no need for a "new page" button in a Wiki.

Also, once we start enforcing the approval process, an english page must 
exist before a translation can be submitted. If a non-english page is 
submitted first, then I propose that we use google translate to produce a 
somewhat coherent english page out of that, and the non-english author 
together with an editor will have to edit the english text so that it uses 
proper language constructs. That way, we end up with TWO good pages for 
the price of one!
