Personally speaking, I'm strong -1 on translating code, especially for
(weak -1 on comments and docstring, strong -1 on identifiers).

In Japan, many Pythonista doesn't use Japanese identifiers regulally.
There are many "looks similar, but different" characters in Japanese.
So ASCII is more readable than Japanese Hanji.

I don't know about Chinese practice, but how popular Chinese identifiers are?
If you're participating large Chinese community, could you try survey
about it there?

At least, I think Chinese translation team's agreement is needed
before trying it.
