We hope to have this issue fixed well before 9.0 release, leaving ample time to do translations of the 9.0 version of the handbook on the wiki.

A few people have already contacted me as being interested and I will email them a copy. If multiple people are working on a translation, they should coordinate with each other to determine who will translate which sections or who will translate and who will review.

Maybe pointing to a script that select the correct file and display it
with the fail over in English?
