I am using the *Short page all the time, so I need this link. But it could be 
this link only and one could open the complete AllRecentChanges from the 
*Short page.

OK. This is the link text in the sidebar of the default installation.

I agree. I removed the footer links from the home page as the included 
OtherLanguages already points to the same international homepages.

The SideBar link to PmWiki/OtherLanguages is visible on all pages, but so is 
the one in the page footer. Should we keep it on the sidebar, on the footer, 
both or none?

The links in the footer were added 2 years ago to facilitate the work of the 
translators of the documentation. Unfortunately, there are not many people who 
translate and update the documentation. :-)
