Yes, until we change the cpython sphinx-docs configuration in `Doc/conf.py`.

I think we can resume this thread when ~6 translations have reach ~99% translated (is there a currently living translation of the doc in chinese? Heard of https://github.com/python-doc-tw/python-doc-tw for zh-tw and heard of some work on transifex for zh-cn (1.4% translated as of fall 2017).
