Sorry for crossposting initial message to both lists.
I think the topic may be interesting for both - users
and developers. 

Any volunteers to help to translate the documentation
to languages other than English? This is very big job,
so there can be more than one person, working on the
same language.

Among responses to my call for volunteers I got
response from Pedro Restrepo suggesting his help in
Wine localization. See his message below.
Damian Wojslaw requested information on the same topic
on wine-users.

Currently Wine does not have official documentation in
other languages. Some winelib applications are
localized to other languages.

Documents with highest priority for translation:
* README file
* Wine User Guide
* user-oriented pages on Winehq
Plus, we'll need to keep translations in sync with
original documentation.

Comments, ideas, suggestions?
