Agreed on the general goal. My understanding is that the Help activity
is assembled from content from several manuals about sugar and
activities, created and edited at FLOSS Manuals.

I suspect that FLOSS Manuals has a means to maintain translated
versions, not sure how well it works, but several existing manuals
offer alternative language versions.

Maybe the FLOSS manuals platforms is terminally borked in this regard,
I honestly hope not. Because Pootle is not suited for this style of
documentation -- we sure want something wiki-ish that handles
paragraphs, tables, embedded images...
