Subject: Translation of plugin wiki pages
Hi,

is it unwanted to translate the Plugin Pages?

- The discussion and some helpfull information gets splitted into a few languages.

+ On the other hand it is maybe helpfull for new DokuWiki.

In some cases (very popular plugins) it would be good to have translations, it's supported. But there are some things to remember...

1) Many plugin authors are not multi lingual, so they can't help or explain things in languages they don't understand.

2) The translated versions are hard to maintain for frequently updated plugins. They download button always points to the most recent version but the translation might relate to previous versions.

Happy translation
