Jumping into the conversation here... Hi! New guy here.

Just to say that I tend to agree with Barry. However, this means all
documentation need to be throughly "tested" and corrected before it is

If English is the "base" language, it would be nice to have a team of
and even more important that these translators are informed of changes in the
English documentation (to update their translations).
