Debian.org is really a nice example. Google.com is another one. Of cause it
would be nice to translate the entire python.org web site also. But I
believe most Python users prefer coding over translating. So please look at
my original posting again. The editor of each language is only supposed to
compile and maintain one single (welcome) page. This page contains mainly
hand picked quality links to resources related to his or her language.

This would help especially first time visitors who have poor knowledge of
English (or none at all) to discover Python.
