If you explain what exactly is missing (explain it for a non-chinese :), 
we maybe can help.

OK, this is understood. We have to treat it like 2 languages.

How is this "autochangeover" done? Automatic translation?

What triggers that "autochangeover"?

For the languages I know (german and english), wikipedia (mediawiki) 
does NOT auto-translate, they just offer navigation that links you to 
the other-language wiki and the equivalent page there. This is done 
manually by putting those links on that page and by running 1 wiki per 
language (and translating all stuff manually / writing own stuff manually).
