There should be some mechanism whereby translators are informed that there have 
been changes (ie. pgsql-committers kind of list) ...

You could argue that ppl are doing that now ... they go to a 'language / 
regional site' and then have to cut over to the main site in english to read, 
say, the docs ...

At least having 15% visible would hopefully encourage work to be done on the 
other 85% over time ... whereas right, just getting started might seem a 
daunting task ...
