The Wikimedia movement has a lot of technical user guides and other technical documentation in English, relevant for users of all languages, hosted on MediaWiki.org. This is usually translatable and rarely translated, at least not into more than a few languages, leaving many Wikimedians without documentation of their software in languages they can comfortably read. The Wikimedia movement is a volunteer movement: we edit and translate (and to a fairly large degree, do technical development and technical documentation) in our spare time, but the roads to becoming a translator are difficult to find, and it's difficult to get engaged in the movement as a translator rather than as a an editor who sooner or later ends up helping out with translation.
