This kind of interface is what services like Transifex and Zanata offer
translators (they also have things like phrase dictionaries, showing how
particular terms have been translated elsewhere in the project).

For the actual documentation, showing partial translations is the standard
practice, as the assumption is that many readers will have *some* ability
to read English, they just prefer to read their native language.
