I just found that according to Netscraft's survey, Apache lost to IIS in some
countries, like South American, China and Denmark. I guess it is because of
the language barrier while IIS provides localized versions for these non
English-speaking users. In fact, even the Japanese translation of Apache
manuals is incomplete.

Additionally, I think if the documentation tranlation is not integrated part
of Apache distribution, those non English speaking users may fail to upgrade
Apache timely if the newer versions include some security fixes.  Maybe we
need the investment from some commercial companies if it is a profitable
business? Just some wild thoughts.
