I understand your point but if we have people that are willing to put  
in the time and effort at translation why should we discourage them?   
I think its awesome that people think enough about Geronimo to spend  
their time doing this for the benefit of non-english speakers.

If it turns out that the content ends up out of sync (which it may  
very well due to the preponderance of english speakers such as  
yourself) at that point I think natural selection kicks in.
