Hi Donghui,

Welcome on the mailing list,

I heard of two Chinese translations, zh-cn and zh-tw.

- zh-tw is working here: https://github.com/python-doc-tw/python-doc-tw.
- zh-cn has an official coordinator, Xiang Zhang, but I don't know the current status of this translation.

Those project may or may not be mirrored on https://www.transifex.com/python-doc/public/.

Anyway, for a translation to live, it needs translators, so feel free to contact one of those teams, and help them translating, either via transifex or via pull requests, it's a good start. (You may also organize translation workshops and so on if you want to speed-up the translation, translating alone is impossible).

Then, as the PEP 545 is stating, the documentation can start to appear in the language switcher only when having fully translated the tutorial and some other pages, but if an active translation team would like to have its translation built by the server (typically to proofread), without being added to the language switcher, it may be allowd (documented in https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0545/#add-support-for-translations-in-docsbuild-scripts).
