It Takes Communities and Technologies to Make the Document Localization Work More Fun and Productive - Noriaki Fukuyasu, Linux Foundation

When it comes to the localization of those documents into the local languages, the situation is even worse. But the localization of the documents is very critical for growing the local developer communities and ecosystems, and eventually, users.

It really takes tools (technologies) and working processes (community).
