Thanks Ben for testing and generating the online tour for your LoCo!

All languages are generated when you call the translation script. If
your website is an English one, you won't need to run the translation
script, as you can copy directly the contents of the en/ folder.

You are right in noticing that there is a hard link to the Simplified
Chinese version of the tour in the generated HTML. That is because the
tour was originally created for ubuntu.com, where only English and
Chinese versions are available.

Ideally, when building the translated versions, the HTML link should be
replaced to a link to the particular language you are interested in, but
that was out of scope for creating the tour for ubuntu.com.

In any case, I assume webmasters adding the tour to local sites are well
versed in HTML, so it should probably be easy for them to modify the
HTML to remove the link or have it pointing to the right language.
