Man pages are a pain to translate, and many translations are obsolete. Same, or worse, info pages.
One of the problems is that there is no modern tool for doing the job. It is done in plain text with arcane tokens, and the result is "compiled" later. Fine for devs, bad for plain, poor translators.
A GUI would be nice. It would be perfect if LyX could produce them, but I have been unable to succeed, so far. Manedit is such a tool (http://freshmeat.net/projects/manedit/), but last time I looked it did not support UTF-8, it is nowhere to be found in the buildservice, and fails to compile in 64 bits.
Any kind dev around can provide us with a nice, easy to use, tool? O:-)
(I ask in this list because I worry that Linux, in general, doesn't seem to be very interested in producing translated manuals. Are we? ;-) )
