i have a goal in mind regarding translated manual, it is experiencing 
open content. Being not familiar to Debian and free software culture, I 
understand that most of the time it is not magical and demands efforts, 
that a few are doing a lot, the openness leaving opportunities to 
unexpected contributions. I don't know.

Another criterious : the manuel is in development, seeking content for 
both users and developers. According to FreedomBox goal, easyness for 
users is very important. It can (may be) lead to creativity, that is 
what the following document intends to do with a fragmented shape :

Regarding Plinth, translation has started on Github
It may need later transifex.com or traditionnal debian translation tools 
(that i am not fully aware of, i'll check), if the process is more 
crowded with more langages going, i am not in the decision process here
