From my perspective mediawiki is a pain for anyone who'd like to translate an 
article. i might be wrong. If so, please just explain me how do i translate a 
page from www.postgresqldocs.org.

for instance this page :
http://www.postgresqldocs.org/index.php/Slow_Count

Afaik the only way to make translation easy with medawiki is to create a 
separate mediawiki instance for each language. Which sounds like a pretty bad 
idea in our case.

Moreover i'm just frustrated that every new projet in this community just uses 
English has its one and only language. I'm not asking that every projet 
translate all their content in various language, i'm just asking for the 
**possibility** of doing the translation. When people launch a new project, 
is that so hard to ask the question : "What if a Spanish guy comes up and 
want to translate our {software,wiki,flyer,whatever} ?". 
In most cases, the response is a closed door.

There are still a few people on this earth that don't speak English. Some of 
them don't event want to learn this language. Does this mean they cannot use 
PostgreSQL or get involved in PostgreSQL Europe ?

i think the admins are working on this already. There have been some changes 
in the IP addresses range of these servers.

Please be patient.
