There is no effort I am aware off. 
The problem - like on any OS software system - is that on releases the
translation must be edited, too.

Start a new project on sourceforge ... :)
Or in Ants wiki ...

Most (nearly all) is done in plain HTML. Only the homepage is generated via
Velocity from xml files
(/xdocs). We are playing with generating the manual with
XDoclet+Velocity/somethingElse from sources
and mergefiles (src-distro: proposal/xdocs), e.g. the <subant> manual page
is generated.

If you want to start a translation (there was a question on Portuguese
before I think), you should 
join the DEV list and have an eye on mail with subject "cvs commit". So
you´ll get notified on changes,
e.g. manual changes.

We have a WIKI already.
Because the manual is part of the distro, the PMC has to have an eye on it.
Thats why the manual
is not a WIKI (we had discussed that earlier).
