I see there is a video up on that page with your presentation.

I haven't looked into it recently but I believe the help2man project
did a good job with getting their manual translated.  They put parts
of the manual in a POT file


So I have help2man manuals on my system in at least Spanish, Brazillian
Portuguese, French, Polish, German, Ukrainian and Chinese.  I'm not aware
of any other manual being translated so widely.  I guess their approach
could be copied by Emacs and others, if it's not being done already.  I
don't know what exactly they do or how that would work with OmegaT, but
I definitely agree that smoothing workflows for translators is a very
good idea.
