Cordova Translation update. 

1. I've had multiple requests for languages in which people wish to help 
translate.  There are now 8 languages: Chinese, French, German, Hindi, 
Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish

2. There are 15 users participating in the project

3. Crowdin uses the option of machine translation using Microsoft 
Translation so any untranslated strings can be automatically translated 
and then verified for accuracy by community members making translation 
efforts much faster than if translators had to manually translate every 
string.  This is a relatively new feature and it is a little buggy.  The 
crowdin support group has been excellent at responding to my issues and 
I'm currently working to debug this with them.  Once it's ready to go 
it'll be a great feature for Cordova.

4. We can run a script to pull the latest documentation for edge 
periodically and upload into crowdin.  This does NOT override any 
translation work that has already been competed.  Instead, it checks to 
see if there are any changes and only requires translation on the changed 
content.  This is great news, I was worried we'd lose content with each 
pull request.  Here is a quick demo video I created showing the script in 

5. I'm working on a modified script that will take all of the translations 
that are complete (100% translated) and push them back into github.  The 
script runs without errors but I don't have a language that is at 100% so 
I'm working on that before I can finalize testing.  My goal is to get it 
done this week.  Once it's completed I can commit the translated languages 
back into my github repo and add a pull request.  We'll need to modify the 
scripts once the documentation is officially extracted into each plugin 

Let me know if you have any questions,
