Translating the HOWTOs

"A hint to people considering doing a translation. First, translate the SGML source (available via FTP from the HOWTO main site) so that you can then generate other output formats. Be sure to keep a copy of the original English SGML source that you translated from! When an updated HOWTO is released, get the new SGML source for that version, and then a simple diff -u old.sgml new.sgml will show you exactly what has changed so that you can easily incorporate those changes into your translated SMGL source without having to re-read or re-translate everything. " (quote from the "BootPrompt-HOWTO").

In fact po files (gettext) can be used to translate HOWTOs and proves its value as long as modifications are small.
