There are a few ways that we could do this:

1. we could we set this up on transifex and ask the larger community to
help translate? To ensure quality, the community (thanks for all the lovely
offers) to be editors and review it.

2. set it up on github - see opendataday.org. Folks are editing the content
and submitting pull requests.
