For translations maybe we can see some collaboration with Ubuntu

Here is my quick feedback regarding translations.

I am not sure how other people are translating the Ubuntu manual, but
for me translating something like this is a real challenge and that
string is prone to many errors:

Latex can create complex mathematical expressions, but I had a hard time
trying to generate Romanian or Russian characters. 
Do you have a PDF or HTML version for Russian translation?
It would be nice to share that recipe.

Also since this is an Ubuntu Manual, it would be nice if translations
will have the same quality assurance process as for Ubuntu Docs and
other Ubuntu translations.
Right now, translations are open and everyone can make translations,
even if they are good or bad.

I hope my feedback was constructive (if not, please ignore it :)

Cheers and good luck!
