Have to tried translation tools? I have converted many Russian source code help files from
the KOL project into English using PROMT translator online. Once in a while you get a funny
translation like "I hit the code twice before she compiled me". But most of it is pretty
good and pretty legible, and A LOT more automated than doing it manually.

Translators like alta vista or babelfish are not nearly as good as PROMT.
