If an article which you are translating has a link to another Wiki article 
inside, then you should indeed update that link to point to the page in 
your language (i.e. ou have to add "it:" in front of the original wiki 
This is not an automatic process. The advantage of keeping the 
*original* links intact, is that every original link will still work in 
your translated page... they just point to the english version. Anyone can 
then decide that they do not like the english text in an italian wiki 
and start working on a translation.

Cheers, Eric
