The English-language PdPedia's content is not even organised in any
meaningful way, and is too scarce. Auto-importing comments from
Miller-style help files tend to do this : the text can't stand being
separated from the example patch. You can't get any translators started
with that, unless they become writers instead.
In the end, though, making translations only in PdPedia will reinforce the
notion that English is more convenient, as it would be the only language
available directly as help files.
But if you put the translations back into help files, that's a damn lot of
repetitive work. Who would want to do it ?
And if instead you retranslate help patches from scratch, then the
translation might not be consistent with PdPedia's.
