Well, it was fairly easy for me to create a PmWikiIt group for the
italian localization. AFAIK the only pages which titles cannot be
translated are RecentChanges and AllRecentChanges. If we could
variabilize their names it could already be enouh, or am I missing
someting ? Consider that I'm fairly new to PmWiki, so I may well
be missing something (WikiTrails maybe?)

These concerns certainly make sense to me. Consider however that the
major effort is typing the localized text. Once it's there then converting
it to a different approach may not be that much of an effort.

For best reading please set the Courier font.
