You might also get in touch with Martin von Loewis
<loewis@informatik.hu-berlin.de>: he recently announced an intention to
translate docstrings in the standard library, with the intent that

>>> doc(os.path.isdir)

would give you help in your native tongue.  ('doc()' was a proposed new
built-in that would do a bit more than ".__doc__" -- it would have to
fetch language-specific text, of course).  Obviously this is quite
different technically from translating the manuals, but everyone
interested in translating Python docs should be coordinating!  Probably
the doc-sig is the right place for that.
