Glad to see effort for Chinese translation.  If you checked the current
translation for German which is one of the most active languages on the
site, you will see how much they have completed on the Main page.  Most of
the Main page is links which are supposed to automatically display the
translated page title for the page that is linked.  Other pages, such as
the PC-BSD handbook whether v10.0 or other versions on the wiki, will allow
for much more content to be translated.  I hope that the documentation
related to doing translation on the wiki is complete, but if not,
suggestions are welcomed and can be added.  I wish for all translators to
have as easiest a job as possible, with no more work than is absolutely

Wishing you and all translators success!
